AGC-Backed DERA Authorization Introduced in the House

Would Annually Provide $100M in Grants for Diesel Retrofits

On March 14, a bipartisan group of Representatives – led by Doris Matsui (D-CA) and Billy Long (R-MO) – introduced the AGC-backed House companion to the Senate re-authorization for the Diesel Reductions Act (DERA) program. Through the DREA program, AGC chapters – working with AGC of America – have won millions in federal funds to support AGC contractor members’ voluntary retrofit projects, in addition to leveraging millions more in matching and in-kind contributions to help contractor members afford the high cost of reducing emissions from construction equipment.
