On Tuesday, August 14, 2018, New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy signed Senate Bill S-865, creating the state’s new Public-Private Partnership (PPP) law, making New Jersey the latest state to embrace this burgeoning delivery system for the construction of public infrastructure projects. The new law goes into effect 180 days from today.
Peckar & Abramson (P&A) has teamed with both The Associated Construction Contractors of New Jersey (ACCNJ) and the Association for the Improvement of American Infrastructure (AIAI) who have been at the forefront in promoting this landmark legislation. P&A anticipates that the new law will create multiple opportunities for much needed public building and infrastructure projects in the state. In our recent Client Alert (June 29, 2018), we highlighted the numerous opportunities that will be available as a result of the PPP legislation, notably for the delivery of projects that may not have otherwise come to fruition.
