Government Relations

Sophisticated organizations take a proactive role in shaping their environment—an approach strongly supported by Gray Plant Mooty’s Government Relations team. We thoroughly understand the ins and outs of public policy—developing, writing, passing, and changing it to help you achieve specific goals.

In the Loop and Ahead of the Curve

Change can happen quickly and, when it affects your business, you’ll want to know about it as soon as possible. By maintaining close relationships in legislative circles and keeping a constant watch on policy developments, our team acts as your early warning system. You receive real-time alerts on proposed legislation, regulations, and other actions before they happen—so you stay ahead of the lawmaking curve on issues that matter to your organization.

Influencing Outcomes

Our team knows how the system works, and how to make it work for you. Collaborating with the legislature, governor, and other officials, we can help shape proposals in an advantageous direction for you. Or we may find the best approach is to initiate legislative action.

For instance, our assistance in amending a law saved one GPM client approximately $300,000 per year in property taxes on a sewage treatment plant, despite the potential negative effect on local revenues.

In another case, existing law prevented a client from providing critical information to its customers. Working collaboratively with governmental agencies, the legislature, and our client, we were able to make key changes in the law, removing a major obstacle to the success of our client’s business.
