Insight On Business the News Hour

Project Labor Agreements - Local Control?

When we first read about Project Labor Agreements (PLA) and SSB 1145 working it's way through the Iowa Legislature we were intrigued as to what it meant for business, tax payers and workers. Greg Spenner from Associated Builders and Contractors contacted our office with a request to come on the air and discuss the bill and his organization. We set a date for the studio interview. After reading the documents from Mr. Spenner we then reached out to the Iowa State Building and Construction Trades Council (ISBCTC) president Bill Gerhard and asked if he would join us for a "point/counter-point" conversation. When we informed Mr. Spenner of this his group declined the offer. That is the back-story to this conversation.

Our guests are Andy Roberts Business Manager of the Plumbers and Fitters Local 33 and ISBCTC Vice President and Bill Gerhard, President of the Iowa State Building and Construction Trades Council. We discuss local control, safety, costs, apprenticeship programs and jobs. We think you'll find this interesting...

Business and the Iowa Legislature

The Iowa Chamber Alliance presented their legislative wish list during a press event on December 1st. We asked John Stineman, the Executive Director for the Alliance, to join us for a conversation about taxes, corporate tax incentives and rural revitalization. We think it made for an interesting conversation as business asks for more from the Iowa Legislature.
