AGC Participates in Trump Admin. Deregulatory Week
Represents Construction Industry before White House, DOL & DOT

AGC recently participated in a series of deregulatory events at the White House and federal agencies—including the U.S. Department of Labor and U.S. Department of Transportation – as the administration continues outreach to AGC for guidance on regulatory reforms to undertake. To date, AGC has provided several hundred pages worth of obsolete, over burdensome or duplicative regulations and detailed recommendations for federal agencies to consider in their quest to cut red tape. For a list of top regulations AGC continues to address, click here.

At the White House, Vice President Mike Pence noted that the Trump administration has issued 58 percent fewer and costly regulations than former President Obama and has saved $560 million by cutting regulations. Nevertheless, there is still much work to be done with regulations from silica to “Waters of the united states” and permit streamlining for the construction industry. AGC will continue to provide substantive information to regulators and the White House as well as push forward on Capitol Hill for regulatory reform.
