Today, Governor Brian Sandoval signed historic construction defect legislation that will restore Nevada’s Chapter 40 statutes to their original intent – bringing Nevada’s homeowners quick and effective resolution to construction issues on their homes.
“The Nevada Subcontractors Association would like to thank Governor Sandoval and all the legislators who helped pass AB125,” said NSA president Scott Donnelly. “We are also extremely grateful for the efforts of legislators of both parties with whom we worked over the years to develop Chapter 40 reform, homebuilders, all the NSA members and staff and other members of the subcontractor and supplier community, homeowners and others who dedicated so much time and effort into achieving this reform.”
Though this piece of legislation is the first major bill to be signed by the Governor this session, the journey to passage of Chapter 40 reform has been neither quick nor easy. The NSA was created in 1999 for the purpose passing effective reform of Nevada’s construction defect laws and our members have dedicated incalculable amounts of time, sweat and heart to achieving this goal. Some of the individuals and companies who helped us along the way are not around to enjoy this day with us.
“Over more than a decade-and-a-half the NSA has experienced our share of victories and setbacks,” Donnelly stated. “The victory we’re celebrating today was made possible by the efforts of many people over the years. The tireless work of past NSA presidents and current and past NSA board members as well as our subcontractor and associate members was essential to this day becoming a reality.”
