AGC Develops Tools for Welcoming the 111th Congress
The 111th Congress will be sworn in January 6, 2009. The Congress will consist of larger Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate. In addition to the election results, there will be congressional leadership and committee changes as well as new cabinet posts.
It is important for AGC members to continue its 90 year history of working in a bipartisan fashion to promote the needs of the nation's construction industry. AGC looks forward to bipartisan work on pensions, immigration and long-term programs to invest in America's infrastructure, including transportation reauthorization, clean water infrastructure and investment in federal buildings. With strong Democratic majorities in both the House and Senate, AGC will work to show the impact of tax, health care and labor issues on the businesses that are members of the AGC.
AGC has developed a Web page that contains information intended to inform AGC members on the role they can play in advocating for building a better construction industry, as well as a document titled New President, New Congress, New Threats and Opportunities.
