MAUI, Hawaii - Jim Hausman, of Hausman Metal Works and Roofing, St. Joseph, Mo., was recognized as the Legislative Contractor of the Year at the Sheet Metal and Air Conditioning Contractors' National Association (SMACNA) President's Luncheon at the 61st annual convention.

"Jim is a loyal member who has made an exceptional effort to develop and maintain a relationship with his U.S. representatives and senators," commented SMACNA President Mark Watson. Hausman has been a Congressional Insiders Club member since 1995 and regularly attends the Construction Alliance National Issues Conference.
