Can a piecemeal approach get Colorado to construction defects reform?

State Sen. Angela Williams, a Denver Democrat, said construction defects reform is a “thicket” that won’t be solved with “one big jumbo bill.”

For years now, construction defects reform has been a top priority for city officials, for affordable housing advocates, for builders and developers, and for years, it hasn’t happened.

The way to make progress on construction defects reform is through narrowly focused bills that tackle specific issues, state Sen. Angela Williams said Friday as she prepared to introduce one more such narrow bill to the suite of construction defects bills before the legislature this session.
