In December 2023, President Biden announced a final rule implementing Executive Order 14063 , which requires federal construction contracts of $35 million or more to be subjected to controversial project labor agreements . ABC issued a statement announcing plans to challenge the new rule in court. On Jan. 4, ABC authored a coalition letter to Congress signed by 23 organizations opposing the final rule and urging members to co-sponsor the ABC-backed Fair and Open Competition Act. In addition, Ben Brubeck, ABC vice president of regulatory, labor and state affairs, authored a Fox Business op-ed on the Biden PLA rule, which ran on Jan. 4. ABC also urges members to contact their U.S. representative and senators to voice their opposition to the final rule and support for FOCA through the ABC Action Center .
