SWACCA Urges Federal Government to Recognize Construction Industry as Essential Workforce

On March 22, SWACCA joined with its fellow employer associations in the Construction Employers of America to submit a letter to the United States Congress advocating for a uniform construction exemption in any federal legislation addressing the COVID-19 crisis.  Specifically, the CEA urged that, “[a]ny federal legislation binding the states and local governments should require that all mandatory quarantine orders include an exemption for ‘essential infrastructure’ that would allow the construction industry to provide emergency and essential services.”  A copy of the CEA letter is available here.
