Building support for new stimulus

The Associated General Contractors of America will also propose a new national recovery plan to jumpstart the construction industry. The study will detail likely bleak job losses city by city throughout the United States, and the recovery plan by the contractors to boost the industry will include a mix of tax credits and regulatory reforms to get business moving again.

The business group will say its proposal needs to pass by the end of this year. Much of it will require action by Congress and the administration.
