AGC Continues to Push for Infrastructure Funds in Economic Stimulus

November 21, 2008
Although Congress failed to enact an economic stimulus package during the recent “lame duck” session, there is substantial talk of enacting an economic stimulus package with substantial investment in infrastructure as early as January 2009.  House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) have both expressed a desire to pass a stimulus package.  President-Elect Obama urged Congress to pass stimulus legislation as soon as possible.  AGC will continue to press Members of Congress in Washington to enact an economic recovery package with infrastructure investment, and we are urging members to take a minute to use the Legislative Action Center and send a letter of support to your elected officials.     Please also take a few minutes to complete a survey that will be used by AGC’s Government Affairs team to advocate and share with Congressional leaders in an attempt to include infrastructure funding in the economic stimulus.
