Legislative Update on Bills of Note (Updated Post-Adjournment)

In two prior posts, one specifically relating to a bill that was introduced to apply a statute of limitatons on state agencies for construction projects and one more general, I discussed some of the legislation pending in the Virginia General Assembly that could be of interest to construction professionals. This post will update the status of these bills and add one that I neglected to highlight in the prior posts.  I’ll begin with the oversight. HB 2218 Makes the unlawful and unlicensed pract...

AGCVA Annual Convention 2019 Was a Blast!

This year marks the Centennial of the Associated General Contractors of America and the AGC of Virginia.  This year’s conference (held January 24-27, 2019) at a new venue , the Greenbrier in White Sulfer Springs, VA, celebrated that milestone.
