ARPA Government Affairs

The Government Affairs committee provides members leadership in the development and implementation of ARPA’s government relations program; identifies, monitors and evaluates key federal and state legislative issues impacting members in the areas of transportation, infrastructure, tax, labor, safety and the environment. The Committee also helps formulate lobbying strategies to win acceptance of ARPA’s positions and provides specific industry involvement and assistance. The Committee offers support in conjunction with industry’s political action committee (PAC) for candidates who advocate positions consistent with ARPA’s established policy.
