Do you find yourself too busy to keep up with what is happening in the Iowa Legislature?  Well have no fear, MBI is here to keep you up-to-date on everything that develops throughout the upcoming session.  MBI’s President, Chad Kleppe, will provide members his insights on what is going on at the Capitol, as well as helping to keep members informed on construction-related issues via the communications below.  MBI members are able to sign up to keep abreast of all happenings at the Capitol.  Here is what we have available:

Here you will find information pertaining to the public affairs efforts of MBI. A majority of our Government Affairs agenda consists of lobbying efforts. However, you will see that other components consist of coalition efforts, communications and our political action committee (i.e. MBI-PAC). MBI is seen as one of the premiere business associations in the state. This is made evident not only from MBI's presence at the State Capitol, but also at the county, city, and local levels. MBI's government affairs program is focused on an agenda that is pro-business and pro-construction. Our efforts advocate the prudent use of taxpayers' dollars in the procurement of public projects, as well as, maintaining the integrity of the construction industry as a vital role in commerce. MBI's Lobbying Team consists of Scott Norvell and Chad Kleppe. These two individuals ensure that MBI has a full time presence at the Iowa Capitol, as well as an ever increasing presence at local governmental levels.
