Government Relations

Local Committee

The Civil Engineering Profession is heavily influenced by the decisions of our elected officials and appointed public policy makers.  All ASCE members are encouraged to get informed about the issues and decisions being made and contact their representatives to ensure their voice is heard. 

The Pittsburgh Section Government Relations Committee helps to keep our members updated about current legislation which may impact our profession.

To get involved with the Government Relations Committee contact Committee Chair Greg Scott at  gscott@bucharthorn.com

America has significant infrastructure challenges – congested roadways, overflowing sewers, transit systems that break down. But that’s only half of the story. ASCE is highlighting the innovative ways infrastructure is being built today, taking advantage of lower prices, new project delivery methods, and innovative engineering and technology that is ransforming public spaces and position America for economic growth.

Explore ASCE’s #GAMECHANGERS website to learn about examples of innovation across the major infrastructure sectors – how we deliver drinking water, treat wastewater, build roads and bridges, design transit systems, generate and distribute energy, and move goods to market.

National Key Contact Program

ASCE National maintains a Key Contact program for members to stay up to date on both state and national policy issues. ASCE Key Contacts also influence the policy process at the state and federal levels by developing relationships with elected officials. We encourage all members to sign up on the key contacts website.
