    Construction Jobs Are on the Line!

    Tell the Trump Administration and Congress to include immediate funding for state departments of transportation (DOTs) in future COVID-19 relief legislation! Thousands of construction jobs may be on the line if they do not act soon.

    Due to the unprecedented impact of the pandemic, some state DOTs are delaying and cancelling projects, as transportation revenue projections show significant declines nationwide. Without immediate federal funding to state DOTs to help ensure these projects can move forward, the threat of significant layoffs grows exponentially.

    Projections continue to show decreases in state motor fuel tax and toll receipts as nationwide vehicle traffic reduction bottomed out at about 50 percent during the height of the pandemic. The Trump Administration and Congress must provide state DOTs with immediate funding to combat the threat of further project delays, cancellations and, ultimately, construction worker layoffs.

    Taking action is easy. Simply complete this form to submit the pre-written message as is or customize it with personal information on how this issue impacts you and your company.

  • AGC Supports OFCCP’s Increased Focus on Compliance Assistance

    On June 7, AGC submitted comments to the U. S. Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) in response to its proposal to institute a new approach in reviewing federal construction contractors’ compliance with OFCCP’s Affirmative Action Program (AAP) and record-keeping requirements through compliance checks. OFCCP intends for these compliance checks to be less burdensome, but exercised in greater quantity as opposed to more intensive compliance reviews or audits. If OFCCP determines during the compliance check that the contractor has not maintained AAPs, affirmative action specifications, and required records, OFCCP will provide individualized compliance assistance to help the contractor come into compliance and may place the contractor in a pool for a future compliance evaluation. The amount of information for contractors to submit would be more extensive for direct federal contractors than federally assisted contractors.
