New California Construction Laws for 2020

The California Legislature introduced more than 3,033 bills in the first half of the 2019-2020 session. Smith, Currie & Hancock LLP has put together a summary of the more important bills affecting contractors in their roles as contractors, effective January 1, 2020, unless otherwise noted.

Not addressed in the article are many other bills that will affect contractors in their roles as businesses, taxpayers and employers. Each of the summaries is brief, focusing on what is more important to contractors. Because not all aspects of these bills are discussed, each summary’s title is a live link to the full text of the referenced bills for those wanting to explore the details of the new laws.
