President’s Infrastructure Plan / AGC Action Alert
UPDATE - 2/13/18 at 1:09pm
Please find attached for your use three AGC one-page fact sheets summarizing the infrastructure funding, environmental streamlining and workforce development portions of the Trump Infrastructure plan released yesterday. Again, you can find the complete plan linked HERE.
Many of AGC’s previous recommendations to the Administration and Congress on the various aspects of this plan can be found in our AGC Agenda to Rebuild our Infrastructure & our Craft Workforce and AGC Reforms for Improving Federal Environmental Review and Permitting.
In addition, we hope that you will please push the AGC of America action alert—linked HERE, email sent yesterday attached, and prominently available on AGC’s homepage—to members through your various communications vehicles/social media. The message is clear and simple: the time for infrastructure investment is now.
Lastly, AGC’s press statement on the infrastructure plan—and the need to address the Highway Trust Fund—was picked up by USA TODAY, among other publications.
As always, we will continue to keep you updated. And, thank you for all that you do.

Trump Administration's infrastructure planAGC will continue to share details.
At first blush, there are similarities between this plan and the recommendations AGC made to and continued to push the administration on over the last 1.5 years.

The White House intends to release the President’s new infrastructure proposal this morning, Monday, February 12th. This proposal is expected to include $200 billion in additional federal funding for infrastructure during the next ten years, reform the environmental process to significantly accelerate federal reviews and urge Congress to address chronic funding shortfalls for infrastructure, including with the federal Highway Trust Fund and airports. AGC of America will be issuing a statement today.
