SB 1636 - Retainage Reform - Passed the Senate Judiciary Committee

IMSCA’s initiative, SB 1636 seeking retainage reform passed the Senate Judiciary Committee today on a vote of 7-2. The bill now advances to the Senate floor where it will be heard by the full Senate. If you haven’t already reached out to your Senator asking for their support and a “yes” vote – now is the time.  

As a reminder, SB 1636 amends the Contractor Prompt Payment Act and allows retainage to be withheld at a rate of 10% for the first half of a construction project, but has to be reduced to 5% once the project is completed. This bill will only apply to private, commercial construction projects. 

Legislators listen to feedback from their constituents and your voice in reaching out to your Senator will be very helpful to our efforts in Springfield. If you don’t know who your legislator is, you can use this link to find out: https://www.elections.il.gov/districtlocator/addressfinder.aspx

IMSCA Legislative Update - February 2019

Governor Pritzker’s goal is to sign the minimum wage increase bill before he provides his budget address on February 20th; which is less than three weeks away. The compressed time table is causing angst among some legislators and the business community.
