A number of events have created the first realistic opportunity to develop a funding plan and advance efforts to build a new trans-Hudson rail connection since the ARC tunnel project was cancelled in 2010. Citing these events, the Building Congress has urged Governor Andrew Cuomo, United States Secretary of Transportation Anthony Foxx, and Senator Charles Schumer to continue their efforts to commence design and construction of the tunnels.

In recently delivered testimony at a hearing of the New York City Council Committee of Land Use, the Building Congress voiced its support of Intro 775. The bill would help streamline the landmark process and create a clearly defined timeline for identifying and designating landmarks in New York City. The Building Congress also supports Intro 837, which would create a searchable, public database of properties under LPC's purview and their status.
