We Have Our Own Political Committee
The team at ABC Florida East Coast Chapter believes strongly in the idea that to be successful we must “Get Into Politics or Get Out of Business.” Unfortunately, in Florida, the commercial construction industry is one of the most regulated industries. That is why it is crucial to make sure our voices are heard. If not, we may be subjected to bills and other legislation that are not in the best interest of our businesses. If you are interested in supporting the ABC Political Committee, please consider making a contribution to our committee. Contributions can be personal or corporate. Contributions are not tax deductible.
We Have Passed Multiple Bills With Your Help!
At ABC Florida East Coast Chapter we are proud to admit that with your help we have been able to pass multiple bills regarding commercial construction, unanimously. These bills include:
• Retainage Bill: This bill helps reduce retainage from 10% to a flat 5% rate on public construction.
• Permit Fee Transparency Bill: This bill helps increase predictability and certainty on projects.
• Workforce Education Bill: This bill addresses workforce shortages.
With your help, our team can continue to advocate for commercial construction companies and contractors in the state of Florida.
