State Government Relations

 Utah State Capitol, Salt Lake City, a 2010 OCEA finalist

Your resource for getting involved locally

Public policymakers at the state level have taken the lead this year in addressing the nation’s infrastructure funding crisis.  Faced with chronic budget gaps, uncertainty about federal funding, and years of underinvestment, Governors and state legislators have been working to tackle aging infrastructure and growing transportation demand.  

ASCE’s state government relations program provides many resources for members to engage at the state capitol including a list of suggested activities for Sections and Branches, and the legislative tracking tool that allows you to see pending legislation of interest to the engineering profession in your state.

While frequently focusing on infrastructure, ASCE members are engaged at the state level on ASCE’s priority issues including licensing and Raise the Bar, STEM, qualification based selection of services, and sustainability.
