State Advocacy

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson
AGC Arkansas vigorously promotes and protects the construction industry through its governmental relations efforts.  Our Legislative Committee sets the agenda for the chapter's legislative and regulatory efforts and the chapter's staff and members then see that agenda through to its end. 

During regular legislative sessions, the AGC Legislative Committee meets weekly to determine the chapter’s positions on construction related bills and determines the strategy to be taken. 

The AGC Highway Division works directly with the Arkansas State Highway & Transportation Department (AHTD) through a signed partnership to help to assure the best road and bridges possible for the citizens of Arkansas.  Additionally, it also works closely with the Arkansas General Assembly  through the AGC Legislative Committee to insure proper infrastructure funding in Arkansas.
