Legislative Update on Covid-19 Relief Legislation
Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 2:00pm EST
Principal, Wyman Associates
NUCA is committed to providing our members as much information as we have regarding the national response to today's coronavirus pandemic. There is obviously a lot going on, and several legislative measures are in play to provide assistance to medical/healthcare personnel, state and local governments, small businesses and their workers, and the American people at large. While the House is expected to close the deal on the proposed $2 trillion package passed by the Senate, more bills are in the works and infrastructure funding will be under consideration.
The discussion of what comprises "essential workers" also continues in federal and state executive chambers. NUCA has been pushing to keep utility contractors front and center in that conversation. In this webinar, Eben Wyman and NUCA's government relations team will provide updates on the information available and answer questions to the best of their ability about Congress' and the Administration's response to this fast moving public health and economic crisis.
Eben Wyman of E. Wyman & Associates represents NUCA's interests in Congress and the federal regulatory agencies across Washington. Eben delivers more than 30 years of experience to underground infrastructure policy discussions. From 2000 to 2012, Eben Wyman worked for NUCA on a broad range of legislative and regulatory matters important to the membership
The national response to the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic flu has been overwhelming to the nation's businesses. Entire sections of the nation have been placed into quarantine in hopes of arresting its spread, keeping employees at home to save them from the risk of illness or worse. In the construction industry, force majeure clauses in contracts allocate risks. These force majeure clauses usually come into play as a result of weather-related events, labor strikes, or natural disasters. With greater anxiety over the potential economic impact of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, force majeure provisions as well as notice and suspension rights are getting a second look. Shawn will discuss on this webinar what these clauses mean in contracts and what business owners can do with provisions relating to delay.
For more than 20 years, Shawn has represented general contractors, construction managers, owners/developers, subcontractors, design-builders, engineers, developers, and sureties in construction-related litigation. Shawn routinely counsels his clients on all aspects of planning, initiating, and completing construction related projects. His areas of practice are construction, and labor & employment, and is licensed to practice law in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York.
