Senator Gudex Receives Building Wisconsin Award
State Senator Rick Gudex of Fond du Lac was recently selected to receive the 2014 “Building Wisconsin” Award, presented by Associated Builders and Contractors of Wisconsin (ABC-Wisconsin). The recognition comes for his hard work during the 2013-2014 legislative session on behalf of Wisconsin’s construction industry. One of the specific reasons he received this award was his sponsorship and support of the Commercial Building Code legislation or Senate Bill 617, which simplifies and streamlines construction regulations for architects, builders and developers. “Being selected for this award from ABC-Wisconsin is a real honor. One of my top legislative priorities going into this session was to eliminate the confusing and unnecessary regulations that are a burden to businesses in our state, and I am glad our local construction industry benefitted from that effort,” Gudex said. He says he is looking forward to continuing the trend of making Wisconsin a business friendly state during the next legislative session.
