AGC Delivers on Environmental Reform
AGC environmental victories include “wins” on issues such as: National Air Standards, EPA’s ‘Mud Rule,’ Fly Ash in Construction, Lead Paint ‘Clearance’ Testing, Off-road Diesel Emissions Rules and Funding for Diesel Retrofit. These efforts save member firms billions of dollars every year.
AGC works year-round to protect construction jobs and the environment, and has a long history of working closely with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to improve environmental performance in a way that doesn’t undermine economic growth. AGC consistently brings contractors’ views to the forefront and helps craft solutions that protect the environment and help members.
Our goal is to protect the industry from costly, prescriptive and unnecessary regulations that would hurt the economy without benefitting the environment.
Over the past year, AGC has successfully pushed the administration to re-examine or delay promulgating a host of significant federal environmental rules with massive economic costs and dubious environmental benefits including:
- National Air Standards
- EPA’s ‘Mud Rule’
- Fly Ash in Construction
- Lead Paint ‘Clearance’ Testing
- Off-road Diesel Emissions Rules
- Funding for Diesel Retrofit.
In addition, AGC has secured millions in federal funding for contractors who voluntarily retrofit their off-road diesel equipment.
