Bell Nunnally Partner Randall K. Lindley and Senior Associate Perrin B. Fourmy provided testimony on Texas House of Representatives House Bill 2237. As originally written, the bill proposed completely removing the requirement that a subcontractor send a notice letter of the unpaid amounts to the original contractor by the 15th of the second month after work was performed or materials supplied.
Lindley and Fourmy along with multiple members of the National Association of Credit Managers submitted testimony requesting that this second month notice letter remain optional, but not mandatory, under the revised lien law.

In response to the testimony and efforts of Lindley, Fourmy and numerous members of NACM, the proposed House Bill 2237 has been amended to permit subcontractors to send the second month notice letter at their discretion.
