PCCA Continues Full Court Press in Washington
The PCCA Government Relations team began 2016 much like it ended 2015, by pounding the pavement in Washington, D.C., to meet with industry allies, promote PCCA members and the work they do, and lend expertise to discussions of our industry.
Seven PCCA members traveled to our nation's capital January 19-21, to meet with top staff people at the Rural Utilities Service Electric Program, the National Rural Electric Cooperatives Association, and the House Committee on Agriculture (both the Majority and Minority sides). The group also met with the staff of Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), author of Rural Broadband Infrastructure Investment Act (HR 4160), and offered support for the bill and then visited several Capitol Hill offices to tout the importance of RUS electric and broadband programs.
