Legislative Update
The NJ legislature is continuing meetings this winter, the NJSPE is currently monitoring the following legislation.
A-931 – Provides State information technology contracts will require use of software to document computer use by contractor.
This legislation will require government contractors to install monitoring software that CIOs say would put citizens’ personal information at risk and potentially put states in violation of federal privacy and security regulations. The software, as described by the legislation, would take screenshots of contract workers’ computers at least once every three minutes, with those images then stored for at least seven years. Some states’ bills, like the New Jersey version, also call for constant logging of keystrokes and mouse activity.
The bill has not moved in this current legislative session, a copy of the bill can be found here:
S-2760/ A4384 – Concerns structural integrity regulations for certain residential buildings.
This bill would supplement the “State Uniform Construction Code Act” (UCCA) to require that certain covered buildings and plans be inspected and reviewed by a structural inspector, as defined in the bill, during the building’s pre-construction, construction, and post-construction phases. In addition, this bill would supplement “The Planned Real Estate Development Full Disclosure Act” (PREDFDA) to assure that associations created under PREDFDA maintain adequate reserve funds to make certain required maintenance repairs to building components and common areas.
The bill passed the Senate Commerce committee in September but has not moved since. A copy of the bill can be found here: Click to access 2760_I1.PDF
A-3811 – Requires geotechnical testing and certain monitoring of transportation projects.
As amended and reported, this bill requires a geotechnical engineer to provide expert recommendations concerning the type and frequency of geotechnical tests needed for transportation projects funded in whole or in part by State resources. The recommended testing and frequency of testing is to be included in the construction contracts of the project and are to be completed during the construction phase of the project.
The bill requires a groundwater test to have occurred within 180 days of the date primary construction begins for any transportation project that requires groundwater testing at the project site. Thereafter, the bill also requires ongoing groundwater monitoring if the site conditions warrant more frequent testing, as determined by the geotechnical engineer.
This bill passed the Assembly Transportation Committee on September 22nd, 2022 and awaits further action.
