AGC Participates on Rural Infrastructure Panel

On June 6, AGC of America’s Utility Infrastructure Division Director, Allen Gray, participated on a four-person panel before the House Democratic Blue Dog Coalition Task Force to address rural development. In addition to AGC, the panel consisted of representatives of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, telecommunications industry, community colleges and the construction industry.  The panel provided input on issues ranging from education/training, broadband access to water/wastewater and transportation infrastructure.
Allen focused particularly on rural infrastructure needs and funding. Investing in rural water/waste water and transportation infrastructure is a prerequisite to building a foundation to attract business, a workforce and connecting rural areas to the greater community.
