In just one week in office, President Biden has issued 21 executive orders, a figure surpassing former President Obama’s 20 executive orders issued over the course of all of 2013.
However, it is important to note that many of these orders by and large do not have immediate practical impacts on federal regulations applicable to the construction industry. It will take many months and even years before the vague directions set forth in many of these orders become more detailed, final regulations. In that intervening time, rest assured, AGC is well-prepared, well-seasoned and fully equipped to ensure the best possible regulatory outcomes by presenting the industry’s positions to career federal agency officials, political appointees and members of Congress via the credibility it has established over many decades. In the event of executive overreach, AGC is similarly prepared to litigate—thanks to corporate contributions from AGC members to the Construction Advocacy Fund—as it has done under both Republican and Democratic administrations.
