NECA’s Top Legislative Issues for the 114th Congress
The National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) is the nationally recognized voice of the electrical construction industry, comprising more than 80,000 electrical contracting firms, employing over 750,000 electrical workers and producing an annual volume of over $130 billion in electrical construction. NECA contractors nationwide are involved in specialized construction work related to the design, installation and maintenance of electrical systems.
A robust investment in our nation’s infrastructure is essential to keeping NECA’s electrical contractors in business, their employees working, and ensuring a sound economy.
NECA contractors know that employees are a key to their success, which is why our electrical contractors invest in the nation’s most comprehensive training and apprenticeship programs, compensate our skilled workforce accordingly, and provide quality health care and retirement benefits. The result is the most-skilled and most-productive electricians in the nation.
Comprehensive tax reform that includes significant changes to both the individual and corporate tax rates must be tackled as soon as possible, in order to propel economic growth and make America more competitive.
Issues governing federal contracting and procurement procedures for electrical contractors are constantly up for reconsideration. NECA works to ensure federal procurement reform is done in a manner that takes into account the many complex challenges electrical contractors face during the bidding and construction phases.
