To bring about necessary change in our construction industry in the Carolinas, we must take a grassroots approach to make our voices heard. Carolinas AGC, AGC of America and ARTBA are working hard to watch our for the industry interests in local, state and national levels of government. The most powerful influence comes from the people in the industry itself though and we know that collective efforts and collective voices do affect legislation and regulations.
Please make yourself a part of a strong voice in the halls of legislatures by participating in our advocacy campaigns, contacting your elected officials and signing up for our legislative alerts.
AGC of America Action Alerts
Tell President Biden and Congress: NO Gas Tax Gimmicks
Take Action: tell your members of Congress and President Biden to oppose all efforts to suspend the federal gas tax. This ill-conceived proposal would directly jeopardize the funding Congress provides communities each year to pay America’s construction industry to build roads, bridges, and transit systems.
Tell Congress & the President to Oppose Government-Mandated PLAs
Take action now and tell your members of Congress and President Biden to oppose government-mandated project labor agreements (PLAs). On February 4, President Biden signed E.O. 14063 that will require—with limited exceptions—every federal prime contractor and subcontractor to engage in negotiation or agree to project labor agreements (PLAs) on federal construction projects valued at $35 million or more.
Take Action - Stop Construction Materials Price Surge.
As construction materials remain at record high prices and face continued availability challenges, President Biden and Congress are taking actions to make things worse. Meanwhile, construction firms around the country are absorbing these costs—which would better be invested in recruiting and retaining construction workers—without significant relief in sight. That’s why AGC needs you to tell President Biden and Congress to take actions to improve the construction supply chain, not make it worse.
Taking action is easy.
