EVEN MAJOR WEATHER EVENTS ARE BIGGER IN TEXAS and TxDOT routinely reaches out to AGC members to help absorb whatever punch Mother Nature delivers.

A FEW DAYS BEFORE VALENTINE’S Day this year, something more than love was in the air. A bone-chilling, record-breaking winter storm invaded Texas, putting millions in the dark, leaving many without running water and forcing families to hunker down.

IN EARLY MARCH THE HOUSE OF Representatives passed a measure called the Protecting the Right to Organize Act, or PRO Act for short.

BOTH THE NEAR AND LONG-TERM future of AGC’s chapter office generated discussion at the Board of Director’s April 6 meeting.

FOLLOWING FEBRUARY’S historic winter storm which brought subfreezing temperatures and icy road conditions to every corner of our state, TxDOT Commissioner Alvin New commended the work of AGC members to keep roads open and safe for travel.

OVER THE COURSE OF THE PAST YEAR, we have all experienced, both as individuals and collectively, an uncomfortable level of unpredictability.

IN JANUARY, THE 87TH LEGISLATURE began, just as it has since 1846. Only this year, besides the normal duties of making a two-year budget and laws that affect Texans and transportation, members are doing so under the shadow of COVID-19.
