Take Action to Encourage State Transportation Funding:
Decreases in transportation revenues are projected to decline by as much as 45 percent in most parts of the country due to COVID-19, increasing the risk of significant project delays and cancellations. AGC of America and our Transportation Construction Coalition partners organized a bipartisan effort calling on the leadership of the House of Representatives to include an immediate $49.95 billion federal fund infusion for state departments of transportation (DOT) to move planned projects forward. 

The Trump Administration and Congress need to hear from you. Take action today and encourage support for this critical funding.

Counties across the state are updating and, in some cases, relaxing their safer-in-place orders. AGC of California continues to update our county tracking document to keep you aware of any changes in real-time.
