“The building industry is facing an unprecedented assault from both the Washington State Department of Ecology and the Department of Labor and Industries,” said Pike. “Crippling new storm water regulations and ever increasing L&I costs continue to hurt an already struggling sector of Clark County business.

“By continuing dialogue with our elected officials, we help them understand our members’ current challenges with the hope that an exchange of ideas will improve our local economy and put Clark County back to work.”
