How We Advocate for You


Educating house and senate members about our industry's needs

Government Affairs Committee

We need your support for a unified voice in Austin.
Will you join us?

Our Government Affairs Committee meets virtually the first Thursday of every month to discuss topics and issues relevant to our members. We are currently working toward the 2021 NUCA National Virtual Washington Summit.  We want to hear from you, and you do not need to be a member to join our meetings with representatives.


We are here to help your company be successful, and an important part of that is helping to make your voice heard, locally and nationally. If you wish to join the Government Affairs Committee or to share an issue that matters to you, please contact us at


Our state-level focus remains on:

  • Infrastructure Funding as part of the upcoming budget.

  • SB 621 and failure to pass the Sunset legislation for the State Board of Plumbing Examiners.

  • Texas’ expired plumbing regulations.

  • 86R 7851: Exemption from the plumbing licensing law for plumbing work performed on certain private property.

  • Working with the Texas Statewide Telephone Cooperative, Inc (TSTCI) on HB 1130

  • White lining initiatives from TX811

  • Municipality participation in utility locates.

  • Industry Workforce: Work permits for the Hispanic population in the utility industry.


NUCA proudly represents our members in Washington, D.C. To amplify our message and influence, NUCA is an active member of several coalitions and business associations with whom we share common interests and goals. We leverage their influence for our members' benefit.
