ABC-FEC Political Action Committee
The ABC Florida East Coast Chapter is deeply committed to the principle that active engagement in politics is essential for business success, as encapsulated in the mantra "Get Into Politics or Get Out of Business." The commercial construction sector in Florida faces extensive regulation, emphasizing the critical importance of ensuring our voices are heard in legislative matters. Without proactive involvement, we risk being subjected to bills and regulations that may not align with the best interests of our businesses. If you share our dedication to advocating for our industry's needs, we invite you to consider supporting the ABC Political Committee through contributions, whether personal or corporate. Please note that contributions are not tax deductible. Your support will help us continue our efforts to protect and advance the interests of the commercial construction sector in Florida.
