Government Affairs


FTBA continuously supports Florida’s transportation industry, serving as advocates for its members among policy makers, agency heads and legislative leaders. Known as Florida’s voice for the transportation construction industry, our working relationship with the Florida Department of Transportation and state’s elected leaders allows for our members’ concerns and interests to be heard.

FTBA TransPAC allows FTBA through member contributions to support candidates for state public offices who are supportive of transportation issues.  FTBA Federal PAC provides the same support for candidates for federal offices.
