SPRINGFIELD, Ill., Aug. 22—Associated Builders and Contractors – Illinois Chapter and member Trotter General Contracting hosted a meet and greet with Rep. Darin LaHood (R-Ill.) today, providing the congressman with an opportunity to see the good work ABCIL members are completing in his district.

The gathering was held at Lamoine Retirement Living in Macomb, a new construction project by Trotter General Contracting. An ABCIL member for the past 13 years, Trotter General Contracting provides one-stop service for commercial, multifamily, industrial, private and public projects in western, northwestern and central Illinois as well as Missouri and Southeast Iowa.

“It was an honor to host Rep. LaHood and give our members an opportunity to weigh in with our representative on the critical issues facing construction contractors today,” said Alicia Martin , president of ABC of Illinois. “Topics of discussion included the shortage of skilled workers in high-demand industries such as construction and manufacturing, expansion of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act to include funding for apprenticeship training and pro-business reforms and deregulatory actions that would help small businesses succeed.”
