SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - February 26, 2009) - Researched by Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- According to The Associated General Contractors of America (AGC), the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act signed into law on February 13 will have a significant impact on the U.S. construction industry. The act includes about $140 billion in construction spending for transportation infrastructure, water & environmental infrastructure, building infrastructure, energy & technology, and work force development & safety.

This, and other key construction industry issues ranging from the risk and financial management to construction law, green construction and building information modeling, will be the focus of discussion and analysis at this year's AGC 90th annual convention organized by the AGC and being held March 4-7, 2009, at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California. Catering to building, federal, highway and municipal contractors, the convention will include more than 50 professional development and industry breakout sessions focusing on various topics, and will be held in conjunction with the CONSTRUCTOR Expo 2009 featuring the latest equipment, tools, products and services for the construction industry.
