AGC of America Action Alerts
Tell Congress & President Biden the Multitrillion-dollar Social Spending Bill Is Bad for Construction
The multitrillion-dollar social spending bill—the Build Back Better Act—could be one step closer to becoming law, as House Democrats seek to pass it as soon as possible. This would position the Senate to consider the bill in December and possibly send it to President Biden for his signature before 2022. Learn what's at stake for construction.
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.
