On February 2, 2021, construction and real estate lawyer Jodie McDougal spoke to an Iowa Senate subcommittee as a construction industry expert on SSB1006, providing comments and background information on the bill.
The bill would make two important changes to Iowa lien law, which would benefit all contractors and other lien claimants. This bill is an affirmative legislative item from the Iowa State Bar Association (ISBA) Construction Law Section.
Jodie, as Vice-Chair of the ISBA Construction Law Section Council, was the initial driving force behind and drafter of this bill.
Further details on the bill can be found in this previous blog post.
