Construction groups are recommending removing the cap on construction workers under the proposed guest-worker provision of the Senate's bill on immigration reform. The cap, which would limit immigrant workers in construction to 15,000 annually, has been challenged by the Associated General Contractors of America and the Associated Builders & Contractors. David Jones of the Arizona Construction Association, however, said that the cap debate should not delay reform and that Congress should approve the immigration measure and then analyze how many workers are needed.
