Sen. Harsdorf receives 2014 Building Award

November 21, 2014

State Sen. Shelia Harsdorf of River Falls was presented with the 2014 “Building Wisconsin” Award by Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin (ABC-WI) at the Wisconsin State Capitol.

ABC-WI is a construction industry trade association which represents nearly 900 employers. Harsdorf was recognized for her hard work during the 2013-2014 legislative session on behalf of Wisconsin’s construction industry. Specifically, she supported the commercial building code legislation, which will simplify and streamline construction regulations for architects, builders and developers. This bill was signed into law on April 17.

In all, there were 21 state representatives who received the 2014 Building Wisconsin Award. ABC-WI President John Mielke noted that less than 16 percent of those in the state legislature were recognized for their efforts, specifically their sponsorship and support of the commercial building code legislation.
