Missed our Legislative Recap event last Friday? Want to know about new laws passed by the 87th Texas Legislature? Check out these recap notes from our very own Jack Baxley, Vice President of Governmental Affairs.
Feel free to reach out to Jack Baxley with any questions at jack@texoassociation.org.
A new rule will require companies traded on the Nasdaq Composite stock market index to meet requirements for diversity among their boards of directors, including the index's many construction-related firms. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission approved a Nasdaq rule change on Aug. 6 that requires its listed companies to have diverse boards or release a statement on why they do not. 
Construction and engineering would be among the major beneficiaries of the $1.2 trillion infrastructure bill wending its way through Congress, according to an analysis by S&P Global that projects a total of more than 880,000 added jobs by 2030. The bill, which includes $550 billion in new spending, would also have longer-term benefits with increased national productivity, the analysis says.

In the face of pressing project deadlines and heavily competing priorities, the addition of unfamiliar Lean Construction processes or tools can feel intimidating, overwhelming, and easy to ignore in favor of what’s already known and comfortable. Because we are builders as well as operations-based Lean practitioners, we understand what you're up against. We have created The Lean Builder Workshops with you in mind: the “boots on the ground.” 
WHEN: Friday, Sept. 10 | 7 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.
