Adam Bakir to Attend Rally Day at the Capitol With State Legislators

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)


Adam Bakir, General Manager at Incredible Renovations is set to attend The Texas Association of Builders 16th bi-annual Legislative Rally Day at the State Capitol on Wednesday, March 4, 2015.


More than 23 of TAB`s 28 local home builders associations will be represented in Austin as members visit with legislators about issues facing Texas` residential construction and development industry.


Rally day is an extremely important event for home builders and remodelers because it is an opportunity for TAB members to face the building industry issues head on and more importantly shed light on some of these issues with state legislators, " said Bakir.

Some of the most important issues that will be covered this year:

  • Secure Funding to Implement the State Water Plan
  • Vocational and Technical Education to Meet the Demands for a Skilled Workforce
  • Increasing Funding for Transportation Infrastructure
  • The Protection of Property Rights
  • Business Taxes and Fees
  • Consumer Choice for Residential Fire Sprinklers
  • Reasonable Immigration Reforms
  • Sensible Energy Efficiency Standards

Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick will kick things off by addressing the group at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, March 4th, followed by remarks from Norman and Steve Sorrells, TAB President.
