Bill A-805 will reach the Assembly Floor in Trenton on Monday 6/29/20. This is the Bill that will require all contract employees to be training in or have served in a certified Department of Labor Apprenticeship Program or meet that specific trades Journeyman’s requirements. I have been working on this Bill for almost 1 year and we are on the goal line. This bill if passed on the Assembly floor should go to the Governor’s desk to be made Law. This Bill will require those contractors that don’t always play by the rules, bring their work standards to the level expected out of us. This should mean greater opportunities for all that take their trade seriously, as we do through our training requirements to be the most safe and skilled option to our owners and contractors. I need your help for the final push, Below is a list of Assemblymen and Assemblywoman, please find the ones that pertain to your location and express your support for A-805 so that these Hazardous work sites receive the safest and most skilled work force available.

Thank you for all your help!  Jim
