Go Build Tennessee Launches To Energize Development of Construction Workforce 

On May 20, 2015, Governor Haslam signed into law the Go Build Tennesse Act to energize interest in construction related education and jobs across the state of Tennessee. Just under one yeat later on May 18, 2016, Go Build Tennessee went live to help rebuild the skilled construction labor market in the state and propel the construction industry in Tennessee forward.

Go Build Tennessee is in response to demographic changes including an aging workforce, the impact of a deep recession and a lack of interest from secondary and post-secondary students. The result has been a persistent lack of skilled workers in the construction trades. Go Build will help develop the workforce who will benefit from better jobs and careers in the construction industry across the state.

Key principals associated with the Go Build Tennessee program in Tennessee gathered on Capitol Hill in Nashville to kick off this important initiative. The Go Build program will be promoted through multimedia advertising, promotional materials, media campaigns and a website to spur interest in young people across the state to choose construction related fields for further job training and jobs.

The program will be run by a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation comprised of members from Associated General Contractors, Associated Builders and Contractors, Home Builders Association of Tennessee and the Tennessee Road Builders Association.

The 109th session of the Tennessee State General Assembly adjourned on Friday, April 22, 2016. From the start of this session of the legislature, AGC staff and the AGC of Tennessee Legislative Committee reviewed all legislation relevant to our industry and formulated positions on a number of measures with specific emphasis on several bills. A "White Paper" was developed and delivered to members of the legislature during the AGC of Tennessee "Day on the Hill" event held on Wednesday, March 16, 2016. Three key bills including Senate Bill 1621, Senate Bill 1830 and Senate Bill 1965 were part of the "White Paper" and the subject of discussion with members during the "Day on The Hill" event. Brief overviews of the three bills are provided:
 
Senate Bill 1621 -  Public Contracts - As enacted, prohibits the state or any local government from requiring a company bidding or contracting to provide services on a public construction project to employ individuals who reside within the jurisdiction of the state or local government or who are within a specific income range, unless otherwise required by federal law. - Amends TCA Title 4; Title 5; Title 6; Title 7; Title 8; Title 9; Title 12 and Title 62.

Passed - Pending the Signature of the Governor
 
Senate Bill 1965 - Employers & Employees - As introduced, makes various changes to the Tennessee Lawful Employment Act, including requiring any public or private employer with six or more employees to enroll in the E-Verify program unless the employer submits an affidavit to the commissioner of labor and workforce development that the employer would suffer an undue hardship. - Amends TCA Title 36, Chapter 5, Part 11 and Title 50, Chapter 1, Part 7.
