ABSTRACT
This article presents news briefs related to the U.S. construction industry. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is investigating Terex Corp. of Westport, Connecticut, during an ongoing probe of one of Terex's biggest clients, United Rentals Inc. The world's third-largest equipment manufacturer says that the new investigation relates to its pending financial restatement for 2000-2003. A jury in Yakima, Washington, awarded more than $4.7 million to 11 pipe fitters who lost their jobs at the Hanford nuclear reservation in 1997 after they refused to install a valve they claimed was unsafe.
