John Mill Testifies Against Senate Bill 20-138
On February 12, 2020, John Mill testified on behalf of the Associated General Contractors of Colorado, the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce and the Colorado Competitive Council against Senate Bill 20-138 before the Colorado Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill would increase Colorado’s statute of repose period for filing construction defect claims from a maximum of eight years to a maximum of twelve years which would negatively affect the construction industry. The bill also would not start the statute of limitations period until the claimant knows the cause of the alleged defect, and would allow equitable tolling of the time periods for filing a defect claim. The committee voted to advance the bill to the full Senate after hearing testimony for and against the bill.
