Associated General Contractors of America Selected the Kentucky Senator for His Work Overseeing Comprehensive Tax Reform, Eliminating Regulatory Barriers, Approving Pro-Employment Judges and Supporting Key Projects
The Associated General Contractors of America today named Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as its first-ever Legislator of the Year for his work during the 115th Congress to support the construction industry. Association officials noted that the Kentucky senator played a key role in passing comprehensive tax reform, eliminating regulatory barriers, approving pro-employment judges and supporting key infrastructure projects in his home state during the 2017-2018 Congressional session.
“The majority leader played a vital role in passing a host of measures during the last Congress that made it possible for the construction industry to continue adding jobs and investing in new equipment and technology,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s chief executive officer. “His leadership in securing passage of many key pieces of legislation helped sustain the growth so many of our member firms have experience the past several years.”
