What contractors need to know
about new change-order legislation

The Washington State Legislature recently passed a bill (SSB 6192) that makes significant changes to change-order laws. AGC members are invited to join us for this May 8 webinar to get the latest info on this bill and its impacts to our industry. The bill applies change-order requirements, currently applied to public works, to private construction as well. It also adds specialty contractors and suppliers to change-order laws. In this webinar, Brett Hill of Ahlers Cressman & Sleight will describe the changes and discuss what general contractors, specialty contractors and suppliers need to do to be in compliance. AGC members may register by clicking here for the webinar and I will send you the meeting link.
New apprenticeship-utilization requirements
by municipalities

Last year, the Washington State Legislature passed a bill applying apprenticeship-utilization requirements (15% of labor hours) to contracts awarded by municipalities (cities, counties, ports, PUDs), beginning July 1, 2024, for projects estimated to cost more than $2 million. This dollar threshold is lowered to $1.5 million as of July 1, 2026, and to $1 million on July 1, 2028. Contractors who work for municipalities will want to make sure they understand the requirements which they may not have encountered before.
In this May 16, webinar, we are pleased to have L&I staff discuss the requirements and answer questions that contractors may have concerning apprentice-utilization requirements and the Prevailing Wage Intents and Affidavits system. Join here via ZOOM, or click here to register and I will send you the calendar invitation with the registration link.
