Construction spending increased from January to February and from a year ago, as private residential and public construction grew for the month and private-sector demand increased for the year, according to an analysis by the Associated General Contractors of America. Association officials said the February data indicates the need for Congress and the Trump administration to work together to reform dated tax codes and to boost investments in aging infrastructure to boost broader economic growth that will stimulate more demand for construction.
