NAHB Supports Faso’s Scaffold Law Reform

At the request of NYSBA, NAHB sent a letter to Congressman Bob Goodlatte, Chairman of the House Committee on the Judiciary, urging his committee to bring the bill up for a vote as soon as possible. Congressman Faso’s Infrastructure Expansion Act of 2017 preempts New York’s Scaffold Law on all projects that receive federal funds. While most NYSBA members will not be impacted by the bill, it will prove to all New Yorkers, the detrimental impact the Scaffold Law has on our economy.
