AGC asks members to continue to urge Legislators to oppose SSB 5963 which would increase unemployment insurance taxes. The original version of the bill would have lowered UI taxes and AGC supported it. However the House amended the bill to increase UI benefits (in addition to the increase added via the federal stimulus plan) which will ultimately mean higher taxes. Other active Action Alerts involve Retro the Alaskan Way viaduct and UW/WSU contracting processes. Click AGC Grassroots Action Network for an easy-to-use way to contact your legislators.
