AGC Pushes for Increased Airport Construction
AGC sent a letter to the Senate Commerce Subcommittee on Aviation Operation, Safety, and Security Chairman Roy Blunt (R-Mo.) and Ranking Member Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.) expressing our support for increasing funding for the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) and lifting the cap on the Passenger Facility Charge. The letter was submitted to the subcommittee as part of their hearing “FAA Reauthorization: Perspectives on Improving Airport Infrastructure and Aviation Manufacturing.”
In addition, AGC shared our support for increasing the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) size standard for businesses participating in the AIP DBE programs and for the use of state pavement specifications on small airport construction jobs.
AGC will continue to ensure that the upcoming Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization includes pro-construction policies and provides increased investment for airport infrastructure
