We are back in the ball game!!!!

On Wednesday night, the Iowa House of Representatives amended Senate File 510 (Standings Appropriations) to add language that would reduce Iowa’s statute of repose on non-residential construction from 15 years to 10 years.  The amendment is essentially the same language in House File 194 that was earlier passed by the Iowa House, but never brought up for consideration in the Iowa Senate.  Well – we have another chance to make an impact on the Iowa Senate!!

Government Affairs

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.
