The Government Affairs & Professional Practice Committee (GA&PP) oversees all legislative advocacy efforts of BSCES at the local and national level. These efforts focus on public and legislative support to obtain long-term, sustainable funding for our infrastructure. Investment initiatives include passage of the Dam Rehabilitation and Repair Act, active participation in the Water Infrastructure Investment Coalition, and advocacy of the Comprehensive Adaption Management Plan in Response to Climate Change Act. Other initiatives include successful advocacy of the extension of the Good Samaritan Law to engineers, Quality Based Selection, and advocacy to enhance educational requirements for Professional Engineers. Our members have testified in support of legislation at the State House, met with local leaders and officials to promote sufficient infrastructure funding, and have appeared in local print and television media to inform the public of the condition of our infrastructure.
Each spring, BSCES co-sponsors Engineers and Land Surveyors Day with the American Council of Engineering Companies of Massachusetts (ACEC/MA) and the Massachusetts Association of Land Surveyors and Civil Engineers (MALSCE). Engineers and Land Surveyors Day is an important part of BSCES’s advocacy effort relative to infrastructure investment in Massachusetts and other issues that might impact the civil engineering profession. This is a unique opportunity for BSCES members to meet with their elected officials to discuss various issues that are important to our community.
