Cayman lawmakers resume meeting Wednesday

The Cayman Islands Legislative Assembly will convene its second meeting of the budget year on Wednesday in what is expected to be a relatively short session prior to the regularly scheduled meeting in September. 

Seven bills, most of them having to do with governing the financial services industry, are due to be considered by lawmakers. A major revamp of legislation governing construction companies is also expected to be taken up during the meeting. 

The Builders Bill seeks to update legislation from 2007 that was never brought into force following passage in the Legislative Assembly. The primary purpose is to ensure proper qualifications of construction firms. 

There have been no official pronouncements regarding when government intends to bring a redrawn voting map to assembly members for approval, but it was not expected to occur during this month’s meeting.
