Four months into the year, 21 firms hit their voluntary PAC fundraising goals

A third of the way through the year, 21 ACEC Ohio member firms have met their 2016 voluntary contribution goals for ACEC's state and national political action committees, but many more firms need to pitch in if the Council is to hit its target numbers.

If you're unsure why you should contribute to the state and national PACs, you might ask yourself:

  • Do you want ACEC Ohio to continue working to oppose extension of the state sales tax to services?
  • Do you want ACEC Ohio to continue to work to pass legislation that would prohibit municipalities from forcing local hiring quotas on those seeking to compete for municipal contracts?
  • Do you want ACEC Ohio to continue to work to pass legislation that would stop government agencies from forcing you to sign contracts containing uninsurable defense and indemnification requirements?
  • Do you want the national Council to continue its work to stop federal agencies from engaging in one-step (competitive bid) design/build?
  • Do you want the national Council to continue its work to gain robust, long-term funding for surface transportation and aviation programs?

The hard truth is that, in order to have effective government affairs programs at the state and national level, ACEC must be able to help fund the election of candidates for Congress and the Ohio General Assembly who support our issues.  If we don't, then other groups, whose interests may be in conflict with ours, are likely to prevail.
