DBIA Advocacy Team Highlights Legislative News
October 2022 Podcast
Each year, design-build advocates across the nation and in the halls of Congress work to ensure that states and federal agencies have full access to design-build to deliver their projects. That authority has never been more important as we rebuild in the post-Covid environment and launch a new infrastructure reinvestment era. DBIA’s advocacy team continues to lead that effort to educate lawmakers and advocate for expansive design-build authority.
In this episode, DBIA’s Vice President of Advocacy and Industry Engagement, Louis Jenny, and Richard Thomas, Director of State/Local Legislative Affairs give us details on why 2022 was a record-breaker for the passage of design-build legislation.
