IEC Applauds House Passage of Save Local Business Act

The Independent Electrical Contractors (IEC) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Save Local Business Act (H.R. 3441), which clarifies the “joint employer” for merit shop electrical contractors across the country.  

“The vote by the House is a great step in establishing a stronger future for merit
shop electrical contractors as they continue to provide jobs and contribute to the American
economy,” said IEC National CEO Spenser Villwock. "IEC would like to thank the House of
Representatives for passing this common-sense legislation, which will provide merit shop
electrical contractors and their contractor and supplier partners the certainty necessary to
grow their businesses.”

Established in 1957, IEC is a trade association representing over 3,300 members with 50 chapters nationwide. Headquartered in Alexandria, Va., IEC is the nation's premier trade association representing America's independent electrical and systems contractors. IEC National aggressively works with the industry to establish a competitive environment for the merit shop – a philosophy that promotes the concept of free enterprise, open competition and economic opportunity for all.
