UPDATE: Construction listed as essential in revised state order

We are pleased to report that after submitting a letter to the governor this evening expressing the need for clarity around construction’s essential function during a crisis, the Newsom Administration updated their Executive Order. 
 
Construction, including housing construction, is listed as an essential need during this crisis. 
 
This clarification will allow our industry to continue working on critical infrastructure improvements essential during this time, including hospital construction and upgrades, building schools, and ensuring our roads and bridges are safe for first responders. 

For questions about the order, please contact one of the following members of AGC's Advocacy Team:
