Each year, the American Council of Engineering Companies California (ACEC CA) coordinates Legislative Visit Day (LVD). ACEC CA’s core purpose is to build a better California by strengthening engineering and land surveying consultants. LVD plays a key role in accomplishment of that goal through member interaction with our elected officials (they love it when their constitutes visit them at the Capitol).
Blackburn engineers Bob Lokteff and Rob Sandquist participated this year and had the opportunity to interact with many members of the State Senate and Assembly. They got to discuss with them about issues important to the engineering community, and the positive impact our work has on public operations and safety. This year’s attendees also experienced the legislative process in action and watched an ACEC CA sponsored bill (AB626) pass unanimously out of the Assembly Appropriations Committee.
