AGC Submits Recommendations
AGC submitted its recommendations to the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) on existing agency regulations that may be appropriate for repeal, replacement, or modification. In accordance to President Trump’s E.O. 13777 to alleviate unnecessary regulatory burdens, and E.O. 13771 that directs agencies to “identify” at least two existing regulations for elimination whenever any new rule is proposed or issued. AGC highlights the regulatory burden the construction industry bears and offered specific program modifications and solutions.
Among AGC recommendations are:
- Credit for Lower Tier Small Business Subcontracting;
- Improve Processing and Payment of Contract Modification; and
- Remove the Lifetime Limitations on Protégés in the Mentor-Protégé Program.
AGC will continue to advocate for practical and real reforms with the federal agencies and Congress.
