SMACNA was represented at Rep. Don Bacon’s (R-NE) annual Arizona political retreat. Angie Simon, a Premier Political Pacesetter and Co-Chair of the Pacesetters Club represented SMACNA at Congressman Bacon’s event held at the Cactus League Spring Training game between the Chicago Cubs and the San Francisco Giants.
Congressman Bacon is a supporter of several issues that are important to SMACNA contractors. These include rules on prevailing wages included within the Davis-Bacon Act, Registered Apprenticeship programs, and increasing investments in America’s infrastructure to provide for higher paying jobs and improve American competitiveness. Bacon is also a member of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, a group of lawmakers seeking to reach across the aisle to find common ground on some of the core challenges facing America.
