Here’s a group that’s certainly not bashing U.S. Rep. Walt Minnick’s upcoming “economic blitz” during the congressional summer break: Idaho businesses who are planning to participate. “Congressman Minnick’s ‘blitz’ is being received positively by my contractor members,” said Mark Dunham, executive director of the Idaho Associated General Contractors. In fact, one of the four events, a session on how Idaho businesses can become federal contractors and bid on federal contracts, will be held at the Idaho AGC’s building in Boise, and the group is helping put it on. “The Idaho AGC appreciates working with the congressman in identifying ways to help the construction industry weather tough times,” Dunham said.
