FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, NOVEMBER 1, 2012.
BUILDERS ASSOCIATION OF THE HUDSON VALLEY ENDORSES LALOR
The Builders Association of the Hudson Valley (BAHV) has endorsed Kieran Michael Lalor’s candidacy for the 105th Assembly District.
Paramount on Builders Association of the Hudson Valley’s state legislative agenda is the call for much needed reform to New York’s Scaffold Law, which currently holds employers and property owners absolutely liable for elevation related injuries. New York State is the only state in the entire county that, in a lawsuit holds the contractor, employer or property owner automatically at fault regardless of employee negligence or even intoxication.
Additionally, the Association strongly supports the need for tangible changes to the State Environmental Quality Review Act (SEQRA) and its implementation in such a manner that both protects the environment and respects the time, energy and resources invested by a developer.
“On behalf of our Association President Pete Berman of The Ruby Group and Steve Rieger of Rieger Homes, Chairman of our Government Affairs Committee, the Builders Association of the Hudson Valley is proud to endorse Mr. Lalor; having been victorious in a difficult three – way primary, we believe that Kieran brings the right approach to making New York more business friendly and in turn, creating many job opportunities in the Hudson Valley and the State as a whole.” said Scott Wohl, Executive Director for the BAHV.
The Builders Association of the Hudson Valley, Inc. (www.hvbuilder.com) is a not-for profit trade association representing the interests and needs of the residential building industry in Orange, Dutchess, Putnam, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester Counties since 1952.
