Political Action Committee (PAC)

With term limits starting to have their full consequence, it is imperative that we constantly pursue the work of our successful grassroots education and relationship building campaign with the both new and incumbent legislators.

MCAO Members must play an important part in this process.

Few legislators come to the Statehouse with the kind of sophisticated construction knowledge necessary to readily understand complex public contracting issues. One on one meetings have been our best defense in combating attempts to repeal a public owner's ability to bid projects with Separate Primes and to fight repeal of Prevailing Wage.  As we've seen so far this session, in many instances it's the few Ohio House and Senate members who understand construction issues that become our first and last resort to preserve these primary issues, especially in this crazy budget bill development process.

It's reality that PAC funds open doors for our members to educate and network, and it is also a key way in which we can show our support for the legislators who have consistently stood with us to protect small business and taxpayer interests.  Only with this consistency and repetition can we build the necessary base of support for our industry so that construction issues get a fair hearing, and are not dismissed because they are too complex to fit into the simple sound-bite trend.

Working together we can strengthen and improve prevailing wage with real reforms that will strengthen the Ohio's sluggish economy rather than seeing our industry join the race to the lowest common denominator AND preserve the competitive bidding laws that protect Ohioans from graft and wasteful spending.  Thanks for your help!
