AGC, Clean Air Group Call for Emission Reduction Help

“If the federal transportation program can connect a continent and unite a people, there’s no reason it can’t help protect our environment,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, chief executive officer of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) of America, as the AGC and the Clean Air Task Force called on Congress to require use of clean construction equipment at federally-funded transportation projects.

The two groups called for required reductions via contract change orders that cover 100 percent of the cost for contractors for retrofitting equipment, following the award of a project to the lowest bidder.
