Contractors call for prompt action on financial rescue plan

Post Time:Sep 25,2008Classify:Industry NewsView:166

The Associated General Contractors of America, the nation's largest commercial construction association, today called on Congress to take swift and decisive action to pass the financial industry rescue package, according to a Sept. 24 AGC release.

"While there may not be a perfect solution to this complex crisis, a failure to buttress financial markets will lead to a credit freeze that will cause the cancellation of construction projects, bankruptcy of construction firms and unemployment of construction workers," stated AGC's Chief Executive Officer Stephen E. Sandherr. "The availability of credit to finance worthy construction projects is the lifeblood of the commercial construction industry," Sandherr noted.
