The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) is in support of the Interior Design Bidding Bill H. 4303.

Signed by Gov. Deval Patrick of Massachusetts, the new law establishes the right of designers to bid as the prime contractor on state contracts and recognizes the profession of interior design within Massachusetts. The law also establishes a defined scope of work for designers, opening up opportunities for qualified design professionals to compete for design work in code-impacted spaces.

“This is a monumental victory not only for members of ASID, but also for the profession as a whole,” said Don Davis, ASID vice president of government and public affairs . “This law allows designers to expand their businesses, utilize their skills to make a lasting impact on state-initiated design and construction projects, and to benefit the state’s economy.”

According to Davis, ASID and its members played a pivotal role in advocating for this legislation, which removes unfair restrictions that had prevented Massachusetts interior designers from competing for code-impacted design work in the state.
