Legislative Support & Lobbying for Compliance
Lobbying for reasonable legislation is the single most important reason for our existence. Ohio Concrete was established in 1938 to combat unfair taxing of truck mixer drums and accessory weights. Since then, we have grown to a thriving Association with a full-time lobbying team providing legislative and regulatory support to members for compliance with new government regulations and to maintain a liaison relationship with governmental agencies including OSHA, OEPA, PUCO and ODOT.
Current Legislative Issues:
Political Action Committees (PACs) are one of the most valuable political involvement activities for corporations and associations. In the past several years Ohio Concrete has been able to achieve the goals set before us to help prevent legislative and regulatory action from negatively impacting our industry. We could not have accomplished these objectives without a strong member-supported PAC.
