Government Relations: Advocacy & Education

The American Subcontractors Association of Arizona (ASA) partners with other construction trade association on advocacy efforts through Arizona State Contractors Coalition (ASCC) on behalf of the construction industry and specialty contractors statewide. Our goal is to improve and safeguard the business environment for companies like yours throughout Arizona — protecting our rights, including the right to get paid, lien rights, and fair risk transfer.


In order to work most effectively on your behalf we need your assistance. Your voice IS your vote. State leaders, including legislators in the Arizona State Senate and House of Representatives are influenced by the voters, their constituents — YOU. You can make your voice heard by signing up to be a member of the Arizona State Contractors Coalition Legislative Action Team, and by encouraging co-workers, employees, family and friends to do the same. There is no cost; this is not a donation request.

Here's how your participation supports our efforts:
• Enrollment allows the coalition to keep you informed of current issues and bills before the Legislature.
• There is strength in numbers. By adding your voice the construction community becomes stronger a whole.
• Sharing your personal information allows you to be identified by your home legislative district and counted as an
ASCC and ASA supporter in your Legislators' district — they listen to their constituent voter base — YOU.
Your personal information is never shared or sold and will be used solely for the stated advocacy purposes.
• For more information on the Arizona State Contractors Coalition visit www.azscc.org.
