House Considering Infrastructure Funding in Stimulus Package

September 24, 2008
House Democrats are advocating for a second economic stimulus bill and infrastructure funding, including highway funding, is being discussed. AGC has sent a letter to the House pointing out the job creation benefits that results from infrastructure funding and pointing out that rising construction material prices and inadequate state budgets have resulted in fewer publics works projects going out for bid. In the case of highway projects, AGC pointed out that state DOTs have responded to an AASHTO survey indicating that over 3000 highway contracts could go out to bid within 90 days if additional federal funds were made available.
