WEEKLY BULLETIN The Marin Home & Garden Expo is YOUR Home Show! Let’s build it together. It has come to my attention that many of you may still be unaware that the Marin Builders Association now owns the Marin Home & Garden Expo, previously known as the Marin Home Show. The event will take place at the Marin Civic Center Fairgrounds and Exhibit Hall June 4th and 5th 2011. Our Expo committee has been meeting since August to help design an impressive event we can all be very proud of. As members of the MBA you are afforded a wonderful opportunity to be highlighted as a member while you showcase your quality business directly to the homeowner. Compared to the cost of advertising, exhibiting at or being a sponsor of the Expo will offer a much richer marketing opportunity directed to the right potential client. One objective in our owning the show is to build it into a top notch, one of a kind destination event that reflects the quality of our members and the high standards of the Marin homeowner. The more participation we have from you, our members, the stronger the show will be. In turn, the more successful the event, the more the MBA can assist you, our members, with valuable membership programs. One program targeted to benefit from any surplus from the Expo is the Marin Builders Association Scholarship Fund. I am asking our members be a part of this exciting event as either an exhibitor or sponsor. There are two advantages to making your commitment as an exhibitor right away: you can pick your preferred location before they are all taken and you can save $100 with the early bird special if you sign up by Dec. 31st. Sponsorship opportunities are extensive and will increase your company’s exposure at the event. Please contact the Expo office at 415-507-1537 or visit the new website www.marinhomegarden.com to download your application. I hope to see you all at the Marin Home & Garden Expo in 2011!

Chinese May Be Our "Meal Ticket" Out of This Depression BY: Phil Vermeulen, Legislative Advocate

Hopefully by now you've taken the time to read my annual year end report. If you haven't, the main point I argue, in terms of the construction industry overcoming the current depression we're in, is we need a major infusion of money into infrastructure. Indeed, this is what got us out of the last "Great Depression" and it's what will get us out of this one, too! But, the challenge is obvious, where do we come up with the funding to build and upgrade everything? Attorney Barney Kamine sent me this article earlier this month and I believe it has merit; BUT, the trillion dollar question is, will we take them up IF they actually make good on this offer? This article was written by the Merco Press on November 3rd.

China offers to finance US infrastructure and help create jobs China’s sovereign wealth fund has urged the Obama administration to spend 1trillion US dollars on infrastructure over the next five years, to create jobs and improve US competitiveness. Zhou Yuan, head of asset allocation at China Investment Corporation (CIC), said Beijing would be willing to invest in such projects. CIC manages part of China's massive foreign exchange reserves, an estimated 300 billion in both domestic and overseas investments. “We are advocating that the US government start a program to invest a massive amount of equity, in the form of public and private equity partnership, in US infrastructure,” he said at a conference of the Chinese Financial Association in New York over the weekend. “Infrastructure projects of this kind will serve to create a lot more jobs than simply QE2, or QE3,” Mr Zhou added. He was referring to quantitative easing; the monetary policy that aims to reduce long-term interest rates and boost economic growth. The US unemployment rate is currently 9.6%. Beijing-based CIC believes Washington should focus on improving high speed links between US cities, as well as super high-voltage transmission lines. Mr Zhou added that the expansion would create 500,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs. Asked by BBC News whether CIC would invest directly, Mr Zhou said: “If the conditions are right, and if, on a risk return basis, we believe this is a good investment, then yes. ”But of course, we want to emphasize the fact that we are going to be a passive investor. We're not here to run anything or to own anything.“ President Barack Obama has proposed spending 500 billion USD on improving infrastructure over the next few years. Congress has not yet approved the idea. Mr Zhou, a fluent English speaker, admitted that his proposal may be a tough sell in some parts of the US. But he invoked John F Kennedy in his pitch: ”It's time to figure out how you can help your country, rather than what your country can do for you”.

Higher Taxes or Reduced Services the Choice That No One Wants To Make! BY: Phil Vermeulen, Legislative Advocate

A close friend of mine has a saying that is soooo appropriate to the discussion about the public demanding that the legislature and governor balance the state budget without cutting services while also not raising taxes! Here goes:

"Everyone wants to go to heaven, but nobody wants to die!" Pretty much sums it up regarding the aforementioned dilemma, doesn't it? Indeed, I've brought this issue up time and again in my year end reports as well it's the voters who've literally created most of the budgetary problems that we now face in this state. Remember Proposition 98 which requires that the state spend nearly 50% of the annual state budget on K-12 education? How about 3 Strikes? Locking the "buggers" up counts for over 11% of the budget! When it's all said and done, the latitude that the legislature has over the annual state budget is less than 15% due to voter mandates!! This certainly is no where near the amount that they will have to cut next year to balance the budget!!! And, for the things that the Legislature does have control over, one interest group says cut while the other howls, STOP! What is the legislature (and new governor) to do? Here's an article from the Orange County Registrar which discusses this dilemma:

Poll: Higher state taxes or fewer services? November 23rd, 2010, 6:06 am · 54 Comments · posted by BRIAN JOSEPH, Sacramento Correspondent Share 3

A recent Los Angeles Times/USC poll found that voters want the Legislature and governor to fix the state budget through spending cuts, not tax increases. But the same poll also found that voters oppose cuts to programs that account for 85 percent of the state budget. Voters apparently are convinced that our leaders can solve the state’s fiscal problems simply by eliminating waste, but if lawmakers really want to fix the budget, they’re going to have to be more realistic when Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger calls them into special session on Dec. 6.


California is facing a $25.4 billion deficit over the next 18 months, yet another multibillion-dollar gap since 2007. Do you want higher taxes or less services? That’s the only choice. Just eliminating waste will not fix the budget. What one thing should the state do to fix its budget deficit? •

Raise taxes

Cut K-12 education spending

Cut prison spending

Cut social service spending

Cut environmental protection spending

Cut transportation spending

Cut consumer protection spending

Cut higher education spending

Cut workforce development spending Over the years, Schwarzenegger has repeatedly suggested eliminating bedrock social programs, but that’s generally been perceived as a negotiating ploy, not a serious proposal. Gov.-elect Jerry Brown vowed during the campaign that he would not raise taxes “without voter approval.” Legislative Democrats have expressed support for tax increases in the past. Legislative Republicans have shuddered at the thought, but haven’t provided very detailed plans for cutting spending either. Once again, you’re going to hear lots of talk during the forthcoming special session about eliminating “waste, fraud and abuse.” You may even hear arguments that the budget would be fine if only the state stopped providing services to illegal immigrants and their children, the cost of which is often estimated at $10.5 billion annually. That’s all rhetoric; its not going to fix the budget. The choice facing California is one of higher taxes or fewer services. If our leaders start acknowledging that during the next special session — and voters listen — future debate over the budget will at least be more honest.

Let the games begin!!! It's going to be very interesting to see how this plays out over the coming months. The Legislature and governor are going to have to play Solomon and it's not going to be pretty!! Happy Thanksgiving! Phil


CONSTRUCTION MANAGER ON PRIVATE WORKS DO NOT NEED TO BE LICENSED By Sam K. Abdulaziz Abdulaziz, Grossbart & Rudman

It has always been thought that a Construction Manager needs to be licensed on public works. However, in a recent case, The Fifth Day, LLC, v. James P. Bolotin, held that this may not be the case. The Court of Appeal reversed the judgment that was entered by the Los Angeles Superior Court. This ruling, which was not a unanimous decision, may be considered factually specific. There was one very strong dissenting opinion. The Plaintiff (Fifth Day) had entered into an agreement to give some “industrial real estate development and construction project management” services on private work property. Fifth Day sued Bolotin for compensation owed to Fifth Day for services rendered. Fifth Day was also responsible for financing some of the construction. Some of the duties that Fifth Day was to perform was to assist, on behalf of the owner in coordinating activities to complete assigned tasks, to maintain various records such as financial books and insurance certificates, keep the owner up to date on the project as well as be the on-site “point person”, responding to issues that may arise. Fifth Day was not responsible for performing any of the construction work. Fifth Day performed all of its duties under the contract and construction was completed. Fifth Day stated that they were not paid all of the monies due to it. When the case went to appeal, the main question was if Fifth Day provided Construction Management services to a private owner of property; Did Fifth Day have to be licensed in accordance with the Contractors’ State License Law? The law itself, does not classify Construction Managers as requiring a license. The main areas of the law that were discussed were Business and Professions Code Sections 7026 and 7057. Section 7026 defines the term “contractor” and explicitly states different activities in the law. It was an undisputed fact that Fifth Day did not contract with the Owner to perform any of the activities that are listed in Section 7026, nor to perform any of those activities. Bolotin also cited Section 7057 of the Business and Professions Code. This section basically defines what a general building contractor is. The Court of Appeal felt that “Section 7057 provides that any contractor who engages in the listed activities is a general building contractor….If Plaintiff is not a contractor (because it does not perform the activities listed in section 7026 which defines a contractor), it is, by definition, not a general contractor.” Basically when the Court of Appeal rendered its decision, they stated that the Legislature is empowered to determine whether a Construction Manager on a private works project needs to be licensed as they do for public works and that unless and until the Legislature does this through the proper channels, Construction Managers do not need to be licensed. The dissenting judge felt that this decision leaves room for unqualified, unscrupulous, and unlicensed contractors, to use a loophole in the license requirement by calling themselves Construction Managers instead of Contractors, which is not what the Contractor’s License Law is intended to mean. Be very careful using the term Construction Manager. Attorney Sam Abdulaziz of Abdulaziz, Grossbart & Rudman has been practicing construction law for over 30 years. He has written a book called “California Construction Law” which is updated annually. He represents numerous construction trade associations and contractors. He appears at Contractors State License Board meetings and has argued a number of cases before the appellate courts, including the California Supreme Court dealing with the "Pay-If-Paid Clause."

SBA Backs Repeal of Burdensome1099 Reporting   Requirements on Small Business Transactions  WASHINGTON In an open letter to small business owners, SBA Administrator Karen Mills described requirements that small businesses report all transactions greater than $600 as burdensome, and called for their repeal. Mills said the reporting requirements in the Affordable Care Act, which were to have begun in 2012, add up to too much paperwork, too much filing. The text of the letter, which is posted on the SBA Website at http://www.sba.gov/1099letter/, follows: Dear Small Business Owner, I’m writing to update you on the progress that we have made regarding concerns stemming from the expanded 1099 reporting requirement in the Affordable Care Act, which could affect small businesses starting with 2012 purchases and 2013 filings. The SBA and the Administration support the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act (introduced by Senator Baucus) which would repeal this provision. As President Obama said on Nov. 3: the 1099 provision in the health care bill appears to be too burdensome for small businesses. It just involves too much paperwork, too much filing. Its probably counterproductive. Our support for the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act also follows the Administration’s support in September for Senate Amendment 4595 (offered by Senator Bill Nelson), which would have relaxed the reporting requirement. All businesses that pay another individual or business $600 or more for goods or services starting in 2012 will be required to issue 1099s. The unintended consequence of a potential paperwork burden resulting from this provision quickly came to light, and we immediately began working across the Administration to reduce the burden of these potential future reporting requirements, as I noted in a letter to small businesses in May. We gathered feedback and comments from the small business community through roundtables, forums, and other feedback mechanisms involving outreach from the SBA, the Treasury Department, the I.R.S. and others. Importantly, the repeal of this provision through the Small Business Paperwork Relief Act will not adversely affect the Affordable Care Act, which provides important health care benefits to millions of Americans. Small businesses are already taking advantage of the new tax credits for providing health insurance to employees this year, and future benefits such as the insurance exchanges in 2013 will provide small businesses with more negotiating power and reduced administrative costs. Thank you for the input and feedback that many of you have provided on the impact that the expanded 1099 reporting requirement could have on your business. Overall, with your help, we will continue to ensure that Americas entrepreneurs and small business owners operate in an environment not burdened by excessive regulation, allowing you to continue doing what you do best: grow businesses, create jobs and lead Americas economic recovery. Sincerely, Karen Mills SBA Administrator

CSLB Announces Zero­Tolerance for C­10 Requirement Violations Only Certified Electricians to Perform Work as Electricians  SACRAMENTO Effective immediately, the Contractors State License Board (CSLB) establishes a zero-tolerance enforcement policy and will issue legal action against any C10 Electrical contractor who willfully employs even one uncertified electrician to perform work as an electrician. CSLB is legally required to open an investigation and initiate disciplinary action against the contractor, which may include license suspension or revocation, within 60 days of receipt of a referral or complaint from the Division of Apprenticeship Standards (DAS). Subsections within Labor Code Section 3099 clearly state that certification by DAS is required for anyone who performs work as an electrician for C-10 Electrical contractors. DAS is required by Labor Code Section 3099.2 to report violations to CSLB. Electricians are defined as all persons who engage in the connection of electrical devices for C-10 contractors. It is CSLBs position that electrical work must be performed by a certified electrician or an approved apprentice. Trenching, concrete, framing, and other work that does not involve connecting electrical devices may be performed by noncertified workers. Questions regarding this CSLB enforcement policy should be directed to Brian Gedney (916) 255-4435.

Dream Big but Start Small: A Recipe for More Business Success with Less  Stress   by Stacy Karacostas

Summary: Starting a business is an inherently risky undertaking. But you can minimize the risks - and your potential losses - by starting small and planning carefully.

Years ago, back when I was still a copywriter and a marketing consultant, I had a client starting a business offering quit smoking classes virtually (via the phone and online). She’d been teaching live classes for years for another company, but saw a niche that wasn’t being filled. Even better, she’d already started leading a test class that was going great! So her chances for success seemed pretty darn good. When she hired me, she was struggling with the best way to deliver content and keep participants accountable. What she really wanted was an automated online tool that could track when someone had completed their homework. At the time online teaching tools like Moodle were either pretty limited or didn’t exist. But I knew starting out she could use a free teleconferencing line and a system of email inexpensive autoresponders to deliver content. Then she’d just monitor homework manually. This would all be relatively easy and inexpensive to set up. And it would let her get launched quickly with minimal investment. Then, if her business grew so big she couldn’t handle monitoring the homework manually, she’d know it was time to invest in a custom online system. We agreed this was a solid, practical plan. Then next thing I know, she tells me a Web developer is going to build her a custom system for only $25,000! That was on top of her Web design fees and what she was already paying me. I advised against this for a number of reasons (cost, maintenance, bugs, etc.). But she wanted her entrepreneurial dream in all its glory right now. The end result? With no money left in her marketing budget she struggled to get her business and its fancy Website off the ground. And she put herself in a good bit of debt to boot. The saddest part is, it didn’t have to be that way. Now, I believe in playing big, offering tons of quality and value in everything you do, and setting big, fat, juicy goals… But whenever it comes to launching something new I don’t believe in jumping in whole hog. And I rarely launch anything in the full-blown, state-of-the-art fashion I might ultimately be dreaming of without testing the waters first. The key is to start small but make sure whatever you do is scalable. Then, as you start seeing success, you reinvest in rolling out in a bigger way.


Because, in the immortal words of my good friend Mike Glavin, “If you’re gonna swing, swing hard...But be prepared to whiff.” So I always swing hard, but I make it so it’s not such a big deal if whiff (IE: I miss the ball entirely). Let me give you a few examples of how I do this, so you can do this too… 1. I did monthly free teleseminars for almost two years before holding my first Telesummit. 2. I’ll test a concept first as a speaking topic to see if it gets interest. If I get booked to speak on the topic, then I might create a live small group workshop. Or write an ebook on the subject. 3. If one of my live workshops proves popular, I record it and turn it into an audio product—one that I already know is likely to be in demand. Or turn it into a virtual coaching program first then a product. 4. If I decide to launch a virtual coaching program, I’ll launch just to my list initially to gauge interest before investing in a full-fledged online launch (complete with video, press releases, social media push, etc.) to a wider audience. 5. I always search for no-cost or low-cost tools that already exist, like email autoresponders, conference call lines, Facebook groups, Moodle sites, simple Web pages etc., to deliver the content. If it’s a hit then I can invest those revenues into having a custom site, program or app built—if it even still makes sense. See how this works? • • • •

By starting small you might lose a couple hundred to a couple grand if you whiff, but that sure beats being $30k or more in the hole. If you think about how you can scale up in the beginning, and put systems in place early, it’s easy to do later. You get the chance to refine your program or product before going big with it. Because you’re testing as you go, you have a much better chance of success with each new—and larger—launch.

Yeah, I know a lot of the mindset gurus say you shouldn’t even consider failure as an option. But you know what? Not everything you do, or launch, is going to be wildly successful. Sometimes you’re going to whiff. If you’re not prepared to miss the ball completely you could be setting your business, and yourself, up for some serious financial difficulties. So remember, dream big, then take a series of smaller steps to get there. You’re sure to achieve more success with way less stress if you do.

CAL/OSHA INJURY SUMMARY - LOG 300 SIMPLIFYING OSHA FORMS 300, 300A, AND 301 INCLUDING POSTING REQUIREMENT OF OSHA'S FORM 300A: "SUMMARY OF WORKRELATED INJURIES AND ILLNESSES"

The Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) Act of 1970 requires certain employers to prepare and maintain records of work related injuries and illnesses. In fulfillment of this requirement, OSHA developed a series of specific record keeping forms: OSHA's Form 300, 300A, and 301. The OSHA 300 series forms are written in plain language and are intended to simplify work-related injury and illness record keeping and enhance company safety and health programs. The resulting data collected by these forms will be used to track and compile statistics on work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths so that employers and Cal/OSHA can develop a picture of the extent and severity of work-related incidents. They will also help Cal/OSHA identify the scope of employer-assistance needs. Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses During each year, OSHA's Form 300, the "Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses", must be used to classify work-related injuries and illnesses and to note the extend and severity of each case. When an incident occurs, employers must use the Log to record specific details about what happened. On this form, employers must record information about every workrelated death and about every work-related injury or illness that involves loss of consciousness, restricted work activity or job transfer, days away from work, or medical treatment beyond first aid. They must also report significant work-related injuries and illnesses diagnosed by a physician or licensed health-care professional. Employers must also record work-related injuries and illnesses that meet any of the specific recording criteria listed in 29 CFR Part 1904.8 through 1904.12. Injury and Illness Incident Report OSHA's Form 301, the "Injury and illness Incident Report", is one of the first forms employers must fill out when a recordable work-related injury or illness occurs. This form, or its equivalent, must be filled in within 7 calendar days after receiving information that a recordable work-related injury or illness has occurred. The form must be kept on file for 5 years following the year to which it pertains. Employees, former employees, and their representatives have the right to review the OSHA Form 300 in its entirety. They also have limited access to the OSHA Form 301 or its equivalent. (See 29 CFR Part 1904.35, in OSHA's recordkeeping rule, for further details on the access provisions for these forms.) Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses At the end of the year, all establishments covered in 29 CFR Part 1904 must complete OSHA's Form 300A, the "Summary of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses", even if no work-related injuries or illnesses occurred during the year. After careful review of the "Log of Work-Related Injuries and Illnesses" to verify that entries are complete and accurate, the total number of incidents in each category listed on OSHA's Form 300 must be transferred to the Form 300A. California law requires employers to post the "Summary" page from February 1 to April 30 of the year following the year covered by the "Summary". It must be displayed in a conspicuous location where notices to employees are customarily posted. A copy of the "Summary" must also be made available to employees who move from worksite to worksite and employees who do not report to any fixed establishment on a regular basis. At the end of the three-month period, the "Summary" should be taken down and kept on file for a period of five years following the year to which it pertains. For copies of OSHA's Form 300, 300A, and 301 or further information clarifying mandatory recordkeeping, including which employers are exempt or no longer exempt, visit Cal/OSHA's Web site, or the federal OSHA Web site. For employers without Internet access or for questions not addressed on these Web sites, call your local Cal/OSHA consultation office.

ACCIDENT INVESTIGATION Accidents are unplanned and unexpected events that cause injury, property damage, and/or financial loss in the workplace. Incidents or “near misses” don’t result in loss, but have the potential to do so. Ideally, safety programs focus on preventing accidents and incidents, but if one occurs, have an accident investigation procedure ready and train your employees how to use it. Investigate ALL accidents and injuries; the severity determines the extent of the investigation. Handled properly, accident investigation helps you look at problems, solve them, improve your safety programs, and prevent future accidents. Accident investigation should prevent recurrence. Adhering strictly to fact finding in a neutral, nonconfrontational manner identifies the true attitudes, behaviors, and other factors that led to the problem. Analyzing facts and asking a neutral “why” question helps find the root cause of the accident. For example, if employee error caused the accident, dig further to determine why the employee made the error. Accident investigation should not be used to blame, punish or exonerate workers and managers; true facts will not emerge in this environment. If you investigate an accident just to complete paperwork and satisfy insurance requirements, you will erode confidence in the system and you won’t achieve your goal of prevention and loss reduction. A supervisor in the affected area is the best person to conduct an investigation because they are most familiar with the tools, equipment, and people involved. Experts in equipment, outside agencies, and other technical resources may also be needed. Start your investigation by securing the scene, placing equipment out of service if necessary, and taking photos. Interview victims and witnesses. Collect evidence and records and document your observations. Find the contributing factors to determine the accident’s root cause. Document the recommended corrective actions, the people assigned to complete them, and a due date for completion.

INVESTIGACIÓN DE ACCIDENTES Los accidentes son eventos no planificados e inesperados que causan lesiones, daños a la propiedad y/o pérdidas económicas en el lugar de trabajo. Los incidentes o “casi accidentes” no causan pérdidas, pero tienen el potencial de hacerlo. Idealmente, los programas de seguridad están dirigidos a prevenir accidentes e incidentes, pero si uno ocurre, tenga listo un procedimiento de investigación de accidentes y capacite a sus empleados en su implementación. Investigue TODOS los accidentes y lesiones; la gravedad determina el alcance de la investigación. Si se conduce correctamente, la investigación del accidente le ayuda a identificar problemas, solucionarlos, mejorar sus programas de seguridad y prevenir futuros accidentes. La investigación del accidente debe prevenir que éste se repita. La adherencia estricta al hallazgo de los hechos de una manera neutra y sin enfrentamiento identifica las actitudes, los comportamientos y otros factores reales que condujeron al problema. El análisis de los hechos y hacer las preguntas en un “por qué” neutro ayuda a encontrar la raíz del accidente. Por ejemplo, si el accidente fue causado por error de un empleado, averigüe más a fondo para determinar por qué el empleado cometió el error. La investigación del accidente no debe usarse para culpar, castigar o exonerar a trabajadores y gerentes; en ese ambiente no saldrá a la luz la verdad. Si investiga un accidente simplemente para completar el papeleo y cumplir con los requerimientos del seguro, erosionará la confianza en el sistema y no alcanzará su objetivo de prevención y reducción de pérdidas. La mejor persona para conducir la investigación es un supervisor en el área afectada, porque es el más familiarizado con las herramientas, los equipos y las personas afectadas. También puede que se necesiten expertos en equipos, agencias externas y otros recursos técnicos. Comience su investigación resguardando la escena, retirando de servicio equipos y, si fuera necesario, tomando fotos. Entreviste a las víctimas y a los testigos. Reúna pruebas y registros y documente sus observaciones. Encuentre los factores contribuyentes para determinar la causa que dio origen al accidente. Documente las acciones correctivas, las personas asignadas para completar las mismas y la fecha límite para terminarlas.
