Hello Brothers, Sisters and friends,
The good weather is here and the work continues to pick up. The law making session is over in Maryland and we were able to once again hold off. However, legislation but our proposed good OSHA 30 Legislation couldn’t even make it through half the session, as it was voted on and lost 5 to 6, with the Senate Finance Chairman Senator Mac Middleton being the deciding vote to kill our legislation on OSHA for the second year in a row. As usual, our opponents, the Association of Builders and Contractors (ABC) and the Minority Contractors Association, in the state of Maryland were able to muster up enough opposition to stop any good legislation that would protect construction workers more.
We are currently in the process of furthering the PLA’s we are working on, being the LNG (Liquefaction of Natural Gas) $3.5 Billion Plant in Calvert County, the Brandywine Firehouse $4 Million, the Cheltenham Juvenile Justice Center $57 Million in Prince George’s County and the MGM Casino at National Harbor $800 Million also in Prince George’s County.
