PHCPPros, Advocacy USA LLC and ACCA will host a national Town Hall Meeting with Congressman Markwayne Mullin (R-OK) and former president of Mullin Plumbing, on June 10 at 12:30 a.m., EST.

Rep. Mullin will discuss national infrastructure issues and how federal legislation could impact the skilled trades. This event is open to PHCP contractors, specifiers and distributors.

Rep. Mullin was first elected to serve the people of Oklahoma’s Second Congressional District in November 2012. He is currently serving his fifth term in office. The Congressman left college at age 20 to take over the family business after his father became ill. Today, Mullin Plumbing is one of the largest service companies in the region.

Mullin and his wife Christie have also started other businesses, which employ hundreds of employees across the state. As one of the few business owners in Congress (and the only one to run a plumbing business), Rep. Mullin brings a business perspective into the national debate on many issues directly impacting small businesses.

Rep. Mullin currently serves on the House Energy and Commerce Committee including the Subcommittee on Communications and Technology, Subcommittee on Health, and on Environment and Climate Change. Rep. Mullin also serves on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Additionally, he is a member of a number of caucuses, and is a co-chair of the House Energy Action Team (HEAT) and the Innovation Caucus.

In-Cab Technology: The Future of Fleet Safety

With vehicle crashes on the rise and cost of crash-related litigation skyrocketing, many businesses are leveraging in-cab technology to help protect their drivers, operations, and bottom line. Many early adopters have achieved impressive results, such as fewer accidents, fewer claims, and fewer false accusations levied at their company drivers. In-cab technology ultimately encompasses any tool that collects information and quantifiable data to evaluate driver behavior, vehicle performance, and road conditions. Read more...

 

PHCC Legislative Update

The 2021 Legislative Session is underway with 38 days remaining with over 600 bills introduced thus far. Many significant bills have a long way to go in the legislative process and we expect they will use the full 120 days. The estimated end date is June 10. 

PHCC-CO has taken positions on seven bills thus far. You can access the bill tracker here. 

PHCC-CO. We have joined other groups in voicing concerns on the many bills that would affect the way business operates in Colorado. While these bills have a strong likelihood of passage, amendments have been added or are being considered which will make the bills more palatable. 

The $32 billion state budget has passed. The state had a significant surplus compared to last year with $5 billion more to spend or save. The surplus meant that the legislature was able to restore many of the significant cuts made last fiscal year. Since much of the additional money was one-time in nature, they used it to invest in construction and infrastructure, buy down future state obligations and bring reserves to historically high levels.

In addition to the normal state budget, there is an additional $700 million in state stimulus that was proposed by the Governor. This package includes investments in:

  • COVID-19 and economic relief for business
  • Infrastructure projects
  • Broadband access
  • Clean energy and environmental programs
  • Housing assistance 
  • Etc. 

The latest federal stimulus package, The American Plan Act (ARPA) is expected to bring a significant amount of money to Colorado, anywhere upwards of $4 billion dollars. The state is awaiting federal guidance on how these funds may be spent and how long it will have to spend them. It is likely that the legislature will convene for a special session in late summer/early fall to allocate the funds.
