Why I Support the Fund

AGC is committed to contractors.

While other associations are narrow in focus and limited in scope, the Associated General Contractors of America has the expertise needed to represent the interests of the entire construction industry. On many issues, if AGC doesn’t do it, it doesn’t get done! This is one of the things I value most about our membership in AGC.

EPA Finalizes AGC-supported Addition of Aerosol Cans to the Universal Waste Regulations

On Nov. 15, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized an AGC-supported(link is external) that expands universal waste regulations to include aerosol cans and streamlines the management of this waste. This measure should help construction firms maintain a lower-tier generator category, as aerosol cans are often the only hazardous waste stream produced on a construction site. This rule also promotes safe puncturing practices and recycling. EPA estimates it will reduce annual regulatory cost between $5.3 million to $47.8 million.

Congress Repeals Federal Highway Funding Cut

On Nov. 21, Congress sent FY 2020 funding legislation to President Trump that includes AGC-backed repeal of a $7.6 billion cut to federal highway funding, known as a “rescission,” that was scheduled to take place on July 1, 2020. This rescission—required by the current federal highway and transit law, the FAST Act— would have affected all 50 states and the District of Columbia by limiting local flexibility and possibly hindering the ability to plan and carry out critical projects. AGC applauds Congress’ action to repeal this rescission and will continue to monitor the progress of FY 2020 spending legislation to ensure continued investment in our nation’s infrastructure.
