advocating for a strong business environment

advocating for a strong business environment

As the voice of the industry, the NEII government affairs team, led by Amy Blankenbiller and Dylan Isenberg, builds strong relationships with lawmakers, regulators and industry stakeholders across North America to educate them about building transportation issues, promote key issues, and secure specific actions. In order to accomplish the goals of the NEII membership, the Government Affairs team draws on the entire staff and membership resources to develop and deploy multi-faceted strategies designed specifically for each jurisdiction and issue. Technical information, data and research, strong communication messages and materials, coalitions, legal options and good, old-fashioned one-on-one lobbying are all part of the NEII Government Affairs program as they work towards positive outcomes for the industry as a whole.

key objectives


Successful adoption of the national model codes

Fair & consistent inspection and enforcement 

LICENSING REQUIREMENTS FOR MECHANICS, INSPECTORS, CONTRACTORS

Protecting customer choice for equipment options

STRONG RELATIONSHIPS WITH POLICYMAKERS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS

We impact policies that affect every day business operations

The more engagement we receive from our NEII member companies, the stronger our advocacy program.  Our efforts at the federal, state, and local level affect building transportation businesses across the nation. Consider the following questions and let us know if NEII should engage on an issue in your jurisdiction.

  • Is there a policy or practice that has an adverse impact on your business?
  • Is the jurisdiction applying code interpretations and other requirements consistently?"
  • Are the licensing requirements and codes consistent with national industry standards?
