Construction Industry Celebrates 40 Years of Regulatory Success

AGC's Famous Candy TruckToday at the state capitol building, the construction industry came together to celebrate 40 years of regulatory success in the state of Oregon. In 1973, Senate Bill 73 was signed into law and has since maintained a uniform, consistent, and predictable building environment for businesses across the state. Along with the Associated Building Contractors, the Independent Electrical Contractors, the National Electrical Contractors Association, and the Oregon State Building Codes Division (just to name a few), the Associated General Contractors Oregon-Columbia Chapter and its candy-filled Caterpillar dump truck were the center of attention to passersby. The fun and informative event marked a wonderful opportunity for AGC to spread the word about the many benefits of membership, in particular the workers’ compensation program, as well as highlighted the sweet tooth within the construction industry, as fun-sized Twix, Snickers, and Milky Ways flew from the bed of the dump truck throughout the day.
