Wow, What A Great Year.

I was told by several people a year ago that this year would fly by, and they were right. I am now wondering if I will have withdrawal symptoms come January—NOT. It has been a great experience for me personally, and I want to say thank you to all those folks who had faith in me being the quasi-voice of AGC of Texas. I have done the best I could, and I do not believe I pulled any of my uh-oh stunts in front of anyone that did not already know me. I am of course not including the summer board attire or the tattooed arms that came out early in the year.

2012 is a High Jump, Not Limbo

In March, AGC of Texas became the proud recipient of AGC of America’s 2011 Large Chapter of the Year Award. This is a big deal! I wish to congratulate Bob Lanham, AGC staff, and indeed, every single one of our AGC of Texas members for this achievement.

At the April Commission meeting, the Texas Transportation Commission voted to allocate the approximately $2 billion in savings announced by TxDOT in February of this year: $1.6 billion to communities across the state using existing funding formulas and $400 million in projects selected by...

Si Vis Pacem, Para Bellum

In 2013, we have an estimated annual letting of seven billion dollars. This is the highest letting our industry has ever seen from TxDOT, and we are happy to have it. But one good year will not undo the damage our industry has suffered from years of underfunding. Our challenge next year is to bring that fight to the legislature, and we had better come prepared. Make no mistake...
