Throughout the day, the group met with area representatives and senators as well as the House Speaker Ron Richard of Joplin. “To have an opportunity to speak directly to the person that basically sets the legislative agenda for the entire state was truly an honor,” said Rusty MacLachlan, HBA of Greater Springfield President. “We also had an opportunity to sit down with officials in the Attorney General’s office to discuss improving enforcement of the state’s workers’ compensation statutes related to the construction industry.” Download a copy of the HBA of Greater Springfield’s Legislative & Policy Agenda by clicking here
“When our legislators hear directly from the home builders and remodelers, it sends a powerful message,” said Morrow. “We are fortunate to have an area legislative delegation that listens and appreciates the economic impact of our industry. It is also encouraging to hear a House Speaker that wants to see small business thrive and who is committed to keeping government from becoming an obstacle to economic development.”
