Negotiations are moving forward between ASA of TN, ABC, AGC and others, on a comprehensive update of Tennessee’s Prompt Pay Act to improve and protect payment rights for subcontractors and GCs. October’s meeting with our bill sponsors, Senator Jack Johnson, Representative Ron Gant, and representatives from the many stakeholders’ groups provided the first roll out of the proposed changes to the law. This legislative effort began with ASA of TN’s initial push to provide a “right to stop work for nonpayment” and relief from “Paid if Paid” contract language. The proposed changes in state law are a culmination of hard work by all parties and will affect many aspects of your access to obtain fair payment for work performed. ASA of TN supports this fair and workable solution to ensure timely payments for work performed by all parties. Join our efforts by becoming a member of ASA of TN. We need your help to pass this major piece of legislation in the upcoming session of the Tennessee General Assembly. For membership information, visit our website.
ASA of TN has successfully engaged in a relationship with the Tennessee College of Applied Technology (TCAT) to start apprenticeship programs at the Nashville campus. The first class of electrical apprentices began in September. Our second apprenticeship program for HVAC is progressing rapidly with projected start in the next few weeks. ASA of TN will continue to develop our relationship with the TCAT system and State Government Officials for all options to expand these programs state-wide to help meet the need for skilled labor in the commercial construction industry.
