The Assembly Judiciary Committee hearing on Senate Bill 972 (Wolk) has been postponed until Tuesday, June 29. Mounting opposition against this costly legislation is making an impact.
If your district has not yet submitted a letter of opposition it is not too late. Take action today by visiting CSDA’s Grassroots Action Center. There you can find all of the tools and background information you need, including a sample letter of opposition.
SB 972 would shift liability costs from design professionals to public agencies by replacing the existing freely negotiated up-front contract process with a new one-size-fits-all scheme that will lead to after-the-fact lawsuits.
This legislation would place new unnecessary litigation costs upon taxpayers and ratepayers leaving fewer dollars for vital public services and infrastructure.
