SENATE LABOR COMMITTEE
SENATE, No. 1912
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
DATED: JUNE 5, 2023
The Senate Labor Committee reports favorably Senate Bill No. 1912.
This bill reconciles certain provisions concerning construction project funds set forth in P.L.2009, c.313 (C.52:38-7) and P.L.2009, c.335 (C.52:40-1 et seq.). Specifically, the bill modifies the language used in section 6 of P.L.2009, c.335 (C.52:40-6) to describe the use of 0.5% of construction project funds set aside for women and minority group members to make it conform to P.L.2009, c.313 by expanding the funded activities to include outreach as well as training, and to include not only construction trade occupations, but other occupations in the construction industry, such as management and engineering.
The bill also modifies the scope of projects subject to the 0.5% set-aside under P.L.2009, c.335, to make it conform with the provisions of P.L.2009, c.313 that not only require the set-asides to apply to State projects, but permit political subdivisions to elect to use the set-aside for local projects.
