Prior to each legislative session, the ACEC WI Government Affairs Committee develops our Government Affairs Agenda. The Government Affairs Agenda serves as our legislative strategy, providing direction to both our lobbyists and our grassroots member lobbyists. From this agenda, priority issues are identified. Our priority issues are:
Investing in our Infrastructure
A strong infrastructure leads to continued economic growth for Wisconsin’s businesses and its residents. Invest in our infrastructure as an opportunity for economic growth and build an even better Wisconsin.

Qualifications-Based Selection (QBS)
When quality and value matter, it is in the public’s best interest when consulting engineers are selected on the basis of qualifications. QBS safeguards public safety and taxpayer funds.
Download a one-page fact sheet to learn more about the financial and safety benefits of a QBS process.
Using Wisconsin Firms
Government cannot create businesses, but it can create fertile conditions for growth by building a strong business environment. The best way to start is to use Wisconsin engineering companies to help support state and local programs.

ACEC is very active on a national level, seeking to create a favorable business environment for the engineering industry through the passage of legislation and regulatory reform. Visit the ACEC Government Advocacy center for the latest national news.
