AGC Launches 3 Percent Repeal Campaign – Have You Taken Action?
Momentum continues to build in Congress to repeal the three percent withholding tax, and AGC members and the construction industry have been at the forefront of the repeal campaign. This week AGC sent out individualized state-by-state updates to our members, which named legislators in their state that have not yet cosponsored three percent repeal legislation and encouraged members to take action and contact their representatives.
The legislation in the House and Senate continues to attract cosponsors, with 176 and 26 in the House and Senate respectively. The legislation is one of the most bipartisan bills with 129 Republicans and 47 Democrats supporting the repeal legislation in the House. However, there are 98 Representatives who supported the bill in previous years but have yet to do so this Congress, which makes increased grassroots activity important.
The time for congressional action is ticking so we encourage every AGC member to encourage their employees and colleagues to contact Congress as well. AGC has provided the tools necessary to quickly and efficiently communicate with Congress.
The number of Chapters and members that have been helpful in contacting Congress is growing and we would like to highlight their activity in upcoming newsletters. Please share your stories with us and complete our survey.
