State of Tennessee General Assembly Adjourns on Friday April, 22 2016
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 & Signed into Law by the Governor
Senate Bill 1830 - Water Pollution - As introduced, requires that general permits issued under the Water Quality Control Act be no more restrictive than federal requirements for management of storm water post construction; requires that provisions of certain general permits be promulgated in rule form prior to implementation. - Amends TCA Title 69, Chapter 3, Part 1. 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. Passed & Signed into Law by the Governor.
The association strongly supported each of these bills. As a result of ongoing legislative affairs work by AGC staff and the work of your fellow members at the "Day on the Hill" event, our voices were heard. If you have any comments or topics you would like to discuss regarding legislative matters, please contact Grace Masterson at firstname.lastname@example.org
