AGC of Ohio advocacy is a comprehensive governmental affairs program coordinated through the association’s committee structure and Board of Directors. AGC of Ohio lobbies and educates the state legislature and statewide elected officials about business and construction-related legislation and policy.

AGC staff works with state agencies on regulatory matters and other business issues of importance to commercial builders. The association files amicus briefs for court cases with significant legal implications on the construction industry. And AGC of Ohio’s political action campaign, AGC ACTION, raises money to assist legislators and candidates for statewide office who support contractors and issues affecting the commercial building industry.
