ABC’s 2013 Congressional Recess Grassroots Toolkit

Congress is going on recess. And ABC members have a valuable opportunity to meet with legislators, develop a genuine rapport and communicate the critical issues facing the construction industry. To help members take make the most of the recess, ABC has put together a 2013 Congressional Recess Grassroots Toolkit.

The toolkit contains:
  • Information on arranging meeting or planning a site visit with legislators
  • Key legislation, including the American Job Protection Act (H.R. 903/S. 399) the Government Neutrality in Contracting Act (H.R. 436/S. 109) and the Legal Workforce Act (H.R. 1772)
  • Key talking points for immigration
  • A survey for members to tell ABC which specific tax provisions to defend as Congress tackled comprehensive tax reform 
Don’t forget to download the ABC Action app on iPhone or Android, which provides an easy avenue to respond to Action Alerts, communicate with federal representatives on policy and regulatory issues, stay up-to-date on critical issues, see how representatives voted, track Key Votes and share information via email, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter.
