ABC sent a letter to the Chairman and Ranking Member of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Oversight and Government Reform ahead of their markup of the Government Neutrality in Contracting Act (H.R. 1671). The bill, introduced by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.), would prevent federal agencies and recipients of federal assistance from requiring contractors to sign an anti-competitive and costly project labor agreement (PLA) as a condition of winning a federal or federally assisted construction contract. ABC strongly supports H.R. 1671 and encourages all members to vote to report this bill out of committee.

ABC sent a letter to the U.S. House of Representatives in support of S.J. Res. 22, which nullifies the “Waters of the U.S.” (WOTUS) rule under the Congressional Review Act.  The resolution will go a long way in limiting the regulatory burden on the construction industry caused by the WOTUS rule and ensuring that our economy is not unduly. ABC will consider this a key vote on the 114th Congressional Scorecard.
