Policy Priorities

NDA is the leading voice of the demolition industry and works to educate and advocate to elected officials on the legislative and regulatory issues that could impact industry practices and standards. 

The government affairs office is strategically positioned in Washington, DC, to proactively educate and shape policy decisions, and react to them when necessary.  The collective voice of the industry ensures that both contractors and workers can thrive and continue to boost the U.S. economy. As a demolition professional, you benefit from the collective efforts of demolition contractors to advocate for common-sense policies in Washington.

Here you will find information about NDA's government affairs activities, including the 2019 National Policy Agenda and updated news about our advocacy efforts.  In addition, visit NDA’s Grassroots Action Center to take action on important policy priorities that impact the industry.

2019 National Policy Agenda

NDA advocates on behalf of our members and the demolition industry on the following issues:

Workplace Safety & Health

NDA believes that lawmakers and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) should balance regulations that provide for a safe and healthy work environment while protecting demolition businesses. NDA members take their safety programs seriously and OSHA should work with our member companies to ensure enforcement is tailored to industry offenders.

Labor & Human Resources

NDA and member companies firmly believe that employees and employers should have the right to determine issues such as wages and working conditions, through either individual or collective bargaining, within the boundaries of the law.

Tax Policy

NDA supports a simplified tax code that does not place an unncessary burden on job-creating member companies. Higher marginal tax rates, taxes and fees on assets, and other confiscatory proposals would have a significant impact on small and medium-sized employers- many of which make up the demolition industry and our members.

Environmental Stewardship

NDA and member companies have reputable track records of engaging in practices that take the environment into consideration. NDA remains committed to working with the federal government to ensure environmental regulations are considered with demolition contractors and their employees in mind.


The availability of quality healthcare benefits is a huge priority for NDA and its member companies and we support proposals that address the increasing costs of health insurance. NDA urges Congress to provide more choices to employers and workers and allow private insurers to compete in the market.

Disaster Response

NDA The demolition industry is ready and willing to aid in disaster response, yet there are currently a number of fundamental barriers to the full and complete cooperation of the industry. NDA supports lowering these barriers so that our members can effectively assist with rescue, recovery and clean-up operations following large-scale disasters.
