AGC-Led Infrastructure Working Group Hits the Hill

Senate Democrats Release Updated Infrastructure Proposal
This week, AGC and the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) led a two-day infrastructure lobbying push on Capitol Hill attended nearly 50 meetings with House and Senate leadership and members of key congressional committees.  Dozens of organizations from diverse sectors such as manufacturing, agriculture, finance, labor, retail, hospitality, construction, transportation, and state and local governments collectively called on Congress to pass a targeted, substantial investment in modernizing our nation’s infrastructure.  AGC CEO Steve Sandherr, and NAM’s President and CEO Jay Timmons amplified this message in an op-ed published in The Hill newspaper.
Now that President Trump has released his plan, Congress is beginning to hold hearings and will hopefully begin putting together a bipartisan plan of their own.  In the meantime Senate Democrats released a partisan plan that calls for paying for over $1 trillion in federal investments by scaling back tax cuts recently provided in the tax bill.
