On September 27, President Obama signed the Small Business Jobs & Credit Act of 2010, enacting numerous tax breaks for small businesses and several significant contracting reform provisions that will have a wide-reaching impact on federal contractors.
Solicitations requiring bidders on certain U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) construction projects to submit an executed project labor agreement (PLA) prompted AGC to write and call agency officials expressing strong concern. On August 18, the agency called AGC to announce that it was withdrawing the PLA requirement and to thank AGC for educating them on the issue.
