Congress Talks Climate Change with AGC

Seeking to find ways to help America build, key congressional leaders bring in AGC to talk about its Climate Change Task Force report, the challenges of the federal environmental permitting process and more.

On Tuesday, July 19, AGC’s Leah Pilconis participated in a roundtable discussion with the House Republican’s Energy, Climate, and Conservation Task Force. This particular discussion was part of their Let America Build series discussing obstacles to the United States producing energy, deploying innovative technologies, and building infrastructure. The event provided AGC with an opportunity to talk to Members of Congress, including House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) and House Select Climate Committee on Climate Ranking Member Garret Graves (R-La.), about the AGC Climate Change Task Force including key findings from the final report.

In addition, AGC discussed challenges to the permitting process and how regulatory uncertainty out of Washington has created instability and made it harder to plan and manage construction projects. Others included on the panel were representatives from GE, Duke Energy, Ascent Resources, The Williams Companies, Utah Department of Transportation, and the Idaho Office of Energy and Mineral Resources.
