A diverse coalition of construction industry associations and employer groups led by ABC sent a letter
to the U.S. House of Representatives April 13 opposing government-mandated project labor agreements and anti-competitive PLA preferences used by federal agencies as a result of President Obama’s pro-PLA Executive Order 13502 and related regulations. The letter asks lawmakers to cosponsor the Government Neutrality in Contracting Act (H.R. 1671
) which was introduced by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-S.C.) and has been referred to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
ABC previously issued a press release in support of the bill which can be found here
In addition, the coalition and ABC also sent a letter
in February supporting the Senate’s version of the Government Neutrality in Contracting Act (S.71
), introduced in January by Sen. David Vitter (R. LA.).
