The Associated General Contractors of America announced last month that it has created a “Legislator of the Year” award to recognize members of Congress who play important roles supporting pro-construction legislation.

The inaugural official to earn the title is Kentucky Senator and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for his work during the 115th Congress.

AGC said that McConnnell played a key role in passing comprehensive tax reform, eliminating regulatory barriers, approving pro-employment judges and supporting key infrastructure projects in his home state during the 2017-18 session.

The Associated General Contractors of America announced last month that it has created a “Legislator of the Year” award to recognize members of Congress who play important roles supporting pro-construction legislation.

“The majority leader played a vital role in passing a host of measures during the last Congress that made it possible for the construction industry to continue adding jobs and investing in new equipment and technology,” said Stephen E. Sandherr, the association’s Chief Executive Officer.

“His leadership in securing passage of many key pieces of legislation helped sustain the growth so many of our member firms have experience the past several years.”

Measures McConnell was involved in included comprehensive tax reform that included rate reductions for many construction firms that file taxes as pass-through entities. The Senator also played a key role in passing legislation to remove a number of regulatory barriers, including the Volks Rule.

“It makes sense to name Senator McConnell as the association’s first-ever Legislator of the Year given his strong support for construction employers,” said Chris Nelson, the executive vice president of the AGC of Western Kentucky.

“Thanks to the Senator, construction employers in our part of the state continue to thrive amid strong demand for their services.”
