The following article summarizes SB 550, which is the pay-if-paid legislation that was filed in the Virginia General Assembly that would substantially undermine the freedom to contract and place the entire financial risk of a construction project on a general contractor.
It is important to note that the bill has undergone several iterations during the legislative process, including several amendments that have moved the language in a positive direction. Nevertheless, there is still much more work to be done in the interim.
AGCVA looks forward to actively participating in the DGS workgroup that will be tasked with evaluating the pay-if-paid issue, crafting potential solutions, and reporting legislative recommendations to the General Assembly later this year.

A career in the construction industry can be highly rewarding, but construction professionals risk burning out if they don’t take care of themselves. Every job has its fair share of stress, but construction workers face a particularly high amount of physical and mental strain. Even at a fun work site, long days on the job can take their toll.
Construction workers need to remember to take steps to care for their bodies and minds if they want to have a long and healthy career. These strategies are a great place to start!
Held virtually, and free for all AGCVA members to attend.
