Advocacy

  • Federal Advocacy

    ASCE actively works with Congress and key senior administration officials on developing legislation and implementing regulations that positively affect civil engineering. Our government relations professionals have decades of combined experience working on major laws including the Highway Trust Fund, Water Resources Development Act and RESTORE ACT.

    2015 Federal Priority Issues:

    • Clean water, drinking water and wastewater issues
    • Natural hazards mitigation and infrastructure security
    • Qualifications Based Selection (QBS) for engineering services
    • Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education

    While frequently focusing on infrastructure, ASCE’s Sections and Branches are engaged at the state level on ASCE’s priority issues. ASCE’s state government relations program provides the resources and support that allows you to monitor legislation of interest to the engineering profession in your state.
