We, at CISCO, are happy to report that Governor Quinn signed HB 3636 into law on Monday, February 11, 2013 at 4:15 pm. The Governor, according to those who were at the bill signing, commented how important this legislation was to the Illinois construction industry, and was happy to put his signature on the bill. He went on to praise the efforts of Senator Mulroe and Representative Kelly Burke for their efforts, and commented that the two demonstrated the importance of having good sponsors on legislation.
Many thanks have to go out to both contractors and representatives of the Building Trades, who worked tirelessly and stayed committed to see the Cypress Creek decision overturned. This is another example of how positive results can be attained when both union labor and management work together on an issue!
The law goes into effect immediately. Thank you again for all of your efforts to ensure that HB 3636 became law.
CISCO’s Legislative Committee Meeting has been rescheduled to April 8, 2013. The meeting will be held at the Concrete Contractors Association, 616 Enterprise Drive, Suite 202. The meeting will begin at 7:30 a.m.
