Duty to Defend update 


MORE INFO - SENATE BILL 213
SB 213: Duty to Defend was a priority for ACEC Oregon during Oregon's 2021 legislative session as ACEC worked with AIA Oregon, PLSO, TriMet, OAME and others to try and pass this important bill to ensure fairness in public contracting. SB 213 would ensure that design professionals would not be required to agree to duty to defend clauses in construction contracts. Duty to defend requirements are especially detrimental to small, emerging, women and minority owned businesses. SB 213 would ensure that each party to a construction contract be responsible for their own negligence or fault.
