ACEC member firm representatives have already sent more than 1,400 messages to lawmakers in support of fiscal relief for state and local governments hard hit by pandemic response actions.  Join them and take action now to emphasize the need for immediate funding to state departments of transportation, transit agencies, airports, and water utilities whose revenues have declined precipitously.  This funding backstop will preserve critical services and keep projects from being cancelled or delayed in 2021.

Other priorities include clarifying the tax treatment of PPP loan proceeds and liability protections for employers that take reasonable efforts to comply with coronavirus standards and regulations.

Congressional leaders are still working with the White House on the next economic relief package, so time is of the essence to make sure these priorities are included.
