NHDOT Speaks to AGC Members on Governor's DOT Budget

On February 20th, representatives from the NHDOT stopped by the AGC office for a presentation on the Governor's DOT budget. Acting Commissioner Jeff Brillhart, Deputy Commissioner Patrick McKenna, and Project Development Director Bill Cass spoke before a group of over 20 attendees to answer questions regarding the new budget plan. They presented a powerpoint based on a 95-page booklet entitled "Citizens Guide to the Transportation System", which can be downloaded in full here.

Lowering WC Costs

AGC this session worked with other trade associations on fixing the high charges by hospital's and doctors when it comes to treating injured workers under Workers' Compensation. We are the only state in New England that does not have some regulation to limit medical costs charged to the program. The Department of Insurance recently analyzed these costs and found on average the Workers' Compensation program is being charged 2.5 times more than healthcare. A bill has been passed this session that will allow providers and insurers to negotiate costs starting this September.

AGC of NH, ME & VT Respond to Mandating PLAs on USACE Projects

AGC of NH joined the Maine and Vermont chapters in responding to a survey released by the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) regarding the potential use of government-mandated Project Labor Agreements (PLAs) on a large-scale construction project. The project is intended to build and renovate military and other federal facilities throughout Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.

The chapters agree that PLAs cause negative effects in the construction industry by decreasing competition and placing unfair limitations on open shop contractors. The Association urged USACE to allow prime contractors to decide whether a PLA is appropriate for a particular project.
