On April 15, AGC participated in a small roundtable with the White House’s National Economic Council centered on President Biden’s Executive Order on Ensuring the Future Is Made in All of America by All of America’s Workers. The executive order directs the Federal Acquisition Regulatory (FAR) Council to consider proposing amendments to the FAR to promote enforcement of the Buy American Act of 1933. The White House staff briefed AGC on the direction of proposed rulemaking and AGC gave feedback to better inform the FAR Council’s as to the impact domestic product preference policies have on those building the nation’s infrastructure.  AGC will continue to advocate for the construction industry to ensure that policy makers are well informed about the uniqueness of construction.
