The focus of the public affairs program of the Master Builders of Iowa is derived from our Mission Statement, which reads:
“The essential resource for improving member performance and promoting a business environment favorable to the construction industry.”
With our Mission Statement as a guide, MBI’s lobbying efforts maintained a constant presence at the Iowa Capitol each and every day during the 2017 Legislative Session. MBI’s lobbyists saw nearly 1,000 different pieces of legislation being introduced and took time to review every bill to see what sort of impact, if any, each would have on the commercial construction industry in Iowa. MBI also participated in multiple committee and subcommittee meetings, often adding the “construction industry’s perspective” to the debate.
