Representative Lincoln Hough

Distinguished Leadership Award — Legislator

Representing the 135th State House District
Missouri State Legislature

Rep. Lincoln Hough successfully sponsored and passed HB 2376, authorizing political subdivisions such as cities, counties and school districts throughout the state of Missouri to use design-build. Rep. Hough’s tireless work on the issue began in 2015, when he first sponsored the legislation, and continued in 2016 because he understood the importance of this issue to the industry and public owners. This was a complex bill with many moving parts and interested parties. Rep. Hough skillfully negotiated while standing strong on core parts of the bill. He is an example of a state legislator who is willing to work on challenging, practical legislation that may lack glamour or press coverage but truly makes a difference for businesses and public entities.
