“We’ll see you at the big North Carolina seal in front of the Legislative Building.”

That’s where we met Dave Simpson from Carolinas AGC, the organization that represents the state’s general contractors and the entire construction industry. We were there to document the AGC’s Legislative Day, a chance for the people who build our buildings, roads and utilities to tell legislators what is important to them.

And, if people couldn’t make it, they could catch the highlights on our video.

When the General Assembly is in session it’s pretty much start early and finish late.

First, we hustled over to a committee meeting where the senate debated an issue that’s important to the AGC. Then we set up an interview with House Speaker Thom Tillis so AGC members could get the latest from someone who knows. We heard presentations from Senate and House members in the Legislative Building and in the nearby state architects’ headquarters. (That is some place, inside and out.)

If you watch the video, you’ll hear Dave say that what happened on Legislative Day will “improve North Carolina.” We were just glad to be able to be there to show it.
