In 2017, the AGC NYS Board of Directors created the AGC NYS Construction Industry Legal Fund so that we could be prepared to take up legal battles when necessary.
We’ve had some major wins on that front as a result, most notably our litigation with industry partners that beat back Andrew Cuomo’s malicious (and clearly illegal) mandatory debarment policy after making its debut at the MTA. The legal fund has also made possible regular amicus curiae engagement on cases involving member firms that have broader industry implications.
These efforts often represent the last line of defense on crucial issues impacting the membership and construction industry—but they are also costly, difficult to anticipate and therefore to plan for financially. That’s where the Legal Fund comes in—to ensure we have the resources at the ready to stand up for New York’s construction industry when it matters most. Please consider contributing to the cause either through our membership dues check-off or by making a direct contribution.
