ACA advocates pleased to see the government is moving toward applying prompt pay legislation to Public Works Acts projects.
Infrastructure Minister Nathan Neudorf heard industry and promised to take first steps despite the short legislative window of time before the next election. ACA applauds Minister Neudorf and the Government of Alberta for publicly acting through a first step with the change in authority contemplated in Bill 9, the Red Tape Reduction Statutes Amendment Act, 2023.
The attached press release confirms changing the authority to the Minister facilitates introduction of the first steps to prompt pay for Public Works projects. True leadership is saying what you will do, and then doing what you say. Thanks Minister for your leadership!
