Changing the Conversation: Neutralizing Legislation

Nov 16, 2016

Lansing-based DBI Office Interiors unknowingly faced a budget bill that threatened its business with the State of Michigan. The company, which for more than 30 years supplied furniture for the State of Michigan, in addition to providing stable employment for the Lansing area, was up against a bill with language that would limit the state’s ability to purchase through them. If left unchanged, the bill would have a dramatic impact for DBI and its employees.

How MLC changed the conversation:

Through education on the broader implications of the bill during meetings with legislative committee members, the MLC team was able to rectify the language so it would not affect DBI’s ability to provide the State of Michigan with product and services. MLC’s extensive experience in procurement and budget bill processes, in addition to its deep relationships at the Capitol, proved to be a winning combination for DBI.
