AGC WORKS FOR RESULTS ON THE EPA FRONT
BY KATIE KUEHNER-HEBERT
A LOT HAS BEEN HAPPENING AT the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) that will likely impact contractors.
AGC of America has been keeping a close watch on the
recent events regarding emission regulation, including a recent
U.S. Supreme Court decision upholding EPA's Cross-State Air
Pollution Rule that could likely spur states to push for greater
cleanup of legacy diesel ﬂeets to further reduce emissions.

AGC has been lobbying regulators and lawmakers to stop
short of mandatory retroﬁts or outright replacements of older
equipment, and instead boost funding to help contractors
voluntarily retroﬁt their ﬂeets.

a ﬁ rst-ever pilot Construction Equipment Rebate Program to
help contractors retroﬁt diesel equipment. AGC members in
