As you were made aware HB3293 would add language that a General Contractor would be responsible for paying the subcontractor employees if they were not paid by their company, even if you paid the subcontractor. This passed the Senate 40-17-1 on a partisan roll call. Then it went to the House of Representatives, sponsored by Jay Hoffman & Katie Stuart along with a few others outside of our area. We had compelling testimony in opposition from Bill Ward, HBAI Executive Vice President, which led the Chair of the Committee asking the sponsor to pull the bill from consideration until there is more negotiations. The bill came back on Thursday night with new opponents; The REALTORS, the Black Contractors and the Hispanic Construction Association. We survived the second wave and will be seeking out the sponsors in our territory to sit down and discuss a reasonable solution because this will most likely be back on the able in January. The Illinois Energy Conservation Advisory Council Residential Subcommittee has been reviewing several amendment proposals for the 2022 IECC and here is what has transpired: NO to recommending proposals: • Electric Vehicle Charging Stations (which was also shut down at the General Assembly) • Solar Ready Infrastructure • Demand Responsive Control Thermostats & Water Heaters • Electrical Energy Storage Infrastructure YES to recommended proposal that provides an alternative compliance path for passive homes. COMING UP is proposals to keep the 2018 IECC R402.1.3 table based on cost increases up to $10k brought to the Subcommittee by HBAI. Then there is another proposal for added exterior insulation Climate Zone 5 for moisture / condensation control. We are in Zone 4 but will be keeping a close watch over this. Page 10

10 Reasons Why Parents Should Advocate for Skilled Trades Careers While you might be encouraging your kid to go to college, there’s another option you may not have considered: promising careers in the skilled trades. Today’s tradespeople are using technology in ways we never would have dreamed, they’re making great money and establishing lifelong careers. Here are 10 reasons why you should encourage your high schooler to enter the skilled trades after graduation. Trade School is Less Expensive Than College While the average price of college is nearly $10,000 per year in the U.S. for tuition alone, trade school is just $5,000 to $15,000 total for a certificate of completion or trade diploma. College tuition doesn’t factor in extras such as housing and textbooks. Trade school is short enough that students don’t typically require long-term housing. They Can Start Working (and Earning Money) Quickly Most students finish trade school in as little as 12 to 18 months, and in between apprenticeship levels, they engage in paid, on-the-job training. After a few weeks in school, your teen could be earning money while gaining valuable work experience. The Money is Good While the average pay for skilled tradespeople varies depending on their experience and skill level, the trades usually offer a fantastic starting salary and a high income. Most Skilled Trades Work Comes with Benefit Packages In addition to the excellent pay, most skilled tradespeople in the construction industry receive benefits with their compensation packages. Feel a Sense of Accomplishment Every Day Encouraging your child to get into a trade means encouraging them to invest in a career that allows them to feel a sense of accomplishment each day and see tangible results of a job well done. The Sky’s the Limit When it Comes to Job Growth Entering a skilled trade means committing to several levels of an apprenticeship before becoming a licensed journeyperson. That means that as soon as your child starts their career, they’re in line for several promotions (and pay raises), provided they complete their schooling and work experience at each apprenticeship level. Once they become a journeyperson, there’s still plenty of growth opportunities. There’s Room for Everyone in the Skilled Trades The skilled trades have plenty of opportunities for women, men and minorities looking for long-term work. In fact, by 2028, it’s predicted that there will be more than 3 million job openings in the skilled trades. They Can Choose a Job They Love There are plenty of choices when it comes to working in the skilled trades. From construction worker to painter to welder, there’s a job for just about every interest and skill level. They’ll Receive Safety Training Skilled trades may sound like a dangerous career, but in most cases, workers receive continuous safety training and certifications to ensure that they’re working safely and within their industry’s regulations. Some Skilled Trades are Close to Recession-Proof Utilities like electricity and plumbing aren’t going anywhere anytime soon, and even in a substantial economic downturn, there’s always demand for skilled laborers who can work in these specialty areas. NAHB members interested in learning more about how to advocate for careers in construction and the skilled trades are invited to attend the Workforce Development Champions Forum on Wednesday, Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. ET, to hear from experts, ask questions, share ideas and learn more about successful skilled trade training and recruitment initiatives happening across the country. The forum is free for NAHB members. Page 13
