Weekly Poll (9)


Reports surfaced last month that New York State police is investigating Turner Construction for bid-rigging and kickback schemes. Do you think the U.S. has a pay-to-play problem in the construction industry?


A Connecticut man was recently convicted of faking a bridge inspection, leading to the reinspection of dozens of bridges in the region. In cases like this, should an inspector’s employer also be held responsible?


Starting Oct. 25, contractors seeking federal contracts over $500,000 will be required to disclose any civil and administrative proceedings against them violations of any of 14 listed workplace protections in the past three years. Do you agree with this action?


A pipeline company was recently indicted on criminal charges for knowingly discharging a pollutant into state waters and wildlife charges; one employee faces up to three years in prison if convicted. Are criminal charges appropriate in such a case?


A Virginia architect was recently sentenced to 33 months in prison for bribing officials to obtain inside information about contracts at a Veterans Affairs’ hospital. Does the punishment fit the crime?


Should the American Institute of Architects amend its Ethics Code to "prohibit the design of spaces for torture or killing?"


An asbestos contractor will serve 10 years in prison for a shoddy removal job. What’s your take on that sentence?


A Pennsylvania painting company owner faces criminal charges for the electrocution of an employee. Authorities say he ignored the presence of high-power lines on a job site. Is the charge fair?


What do you think about George Zimmerman, now charged with second-degree murder for the killing of an unarmed black Florida teenager? (Zimmerman is claiming self-defense.)
