With both chambers of Congress on recess until September 9, it’s a great time to connect to our U.S. Representatives and U.S. Senators in our area to engage them on the top issues facing the construction industry, including Workforce Development, Immigration and Federal Highway & Transit Infrastructure Reauthorization. Please check out the information below to see if your Representatives and Senators have cosponsored AGC-backed, priority legislation on these issues.

Workforce Development: Expand Pell Grants to Construction

Immigration: Create New Guest Worker Visa Program for Construction

Federal Highway & Transit Infrastructure Reauthorization:

  • LEGISLATIVE ASK
    • FOR HOUSE: Follow the Senate’s lead and move a federal highway and transit reauthorization now.
    • FOR SENATE: Pay for and pass America’s Transportation Infrastructure Act (S. 2302)

In addition, please use the below one-pagers as well as AGCA’s complete recommendations for the Federal Highway & Transit Reauthorization.
