RALEIGH, N.C., Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Dave Simpson, NC government relations/building director for Carolinas AGC (CAGC), has been ranked as 34th of the top 60 lobbyists working in the NC General Assembly. There were 768 lobbyists and 88 legislative liaisons (representing government) with the NC Secretary of State's Office at the close of 2013.
Simpson has been with CAGC since April 1989. He is one of three CAGC lobbyists - including Berry Jenkins and Allen Gray - registered in NC. Read the full article from the News & Observer. Some of Simpson's key legislative accomplishments in 2014 include:
- Helping lead efforts for successful legislation that will create a legislative blue-ribbon panel that will look at multi-billion-dollar public building and utility needs
- Recommended permanent related funding sources - through the year 2025
- New underground safety laws, effective Oct. 1 of this year, that will save lives, limit injuries and protect vital underground utility lines, moving NC from one of the weakest states in the nation for underground safety laws to what some say will be the strongest.
"Our CAGC government relations efforts are all about teamwork," Simpson said. "We've got very strong players in the Carolinas, including Berry Jenkins and Allen Gray working in Raleigh, and Leslie Hope and others in Columbia, along with all of our CAGC members and staff, including our NC Legislative Committee Chair Bill Marshburn and CAGC Building Division Chair Susie Lewis, who have spent many hours over the past two years helping the industry."
Carolinas AGC represents contractors and construction-related firms in North Carolina and South Carolina, and serves as a chapter of AGC of America and ARTBA. Together with its members, CAGC believes in advancing the construction industry to enhance the quality of life and deliver a sustainable difference in the Carolinas.

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...
