WASHINGTON, D.C. -

Rep. David B. McKinley, R-W.Va., has won the Civil Government Award from the American Society of Civil Engineers. The award recognizes those members of the engineering profession who have "rendered meritorious service in elective or appointive positions in government."

"The analytical skills and technological expertise developed as an engineer have been vital in Congress," McKinley said. "Engineers base decisions on facts, not ideology. That's the same approach taken in addressing issues and solving problems in Washington."

"As one of two engineers in both houses of Congress, it's my hope that more engineers will heed the call of public service and bring these problem-solving skills to Washington," he said.

McKinley was presented the award during the Leadership and Society awards breakfast on Oct. 19 in Montreal. In February, McKinley was the keynote speaker at the 2012 Federal Engineer of the Year Award ceremony at the National Press Club in Washington.
