The Need The Plan The Cost Take Action!

While the nation continues to suffer through a recession, the construction industry is experiencing depression-like conditions.

According to virtually every economic measure, construction businesses and their employees have been disproportionately affected by the economic downturn. In response to this crisis, AGC of America has developed a comprehensive recovery plan for the industry, titled "Build Now for the Future: A Blueprint for Economic Change." This plan outlines a series of commonsense incentives, tax credits and policy changes designed to stimulate new private- and public-sector demand for construction. While these changes are critical to reversing the current crisis in the construction industry, they are also essential to rebuilding, expanding and sustaining the broader U.S. economy by raising tax revenue and creating a more efficient national infrastructure for the movement of goods and services.
