Excerpt from "A Letter from the Editor"

Welcome to our summer 2011 issue. In keeping with the weather theme, Under Construction is pleased to provide some timely articles hot off the press that we hope you will find informative. We start with a series of articles that examine some of the many differences and similarities in prompt payment laws from both a federal and state perspective in our regional practice area. We then switch gears to look at how a recent Arizona appellate court dealt with how much compliance is necessary with respect to mechanics' lien statutes. The case provides insightful analysis regarding many Arizona mechanics' lien issues. Our next article addresses the “Nevada Jobs First” Act that is designed to increase the number of Nevada residents employed on Nevada public works projects. We examine the potential ramifications of the Act for Nevada general contractors on a number of levels. We wrap up this issue with a look at the increase in union “bannering” and demonstration activities against owners and developers.
