This Wednesday, April 29, 51 representatives from construction companies around the country will travel to Washington, DC, to meet with members of the their local Congressional delegations to explain why proposed “card check” legislation will hurt the construction industry and explain how the construction industry can help rebuild the American economy. The builders are traveling to Washington as part of a series of “fly-in” visits arranged by the Associated General Contractors of America

The builders will discuss why the construction industry would be negatively affected by measures in the proposed “card check” legislation that require Washington-appointed officials to make key business decisions for local businesses. They also will outline how investing in construction and infrastructure projects is one of the most effective ways to add jobs, improve the environment and increase America’s ability to compete in the future global economy.
