COMMENT--JOINT STATE GOVERNMENT COMMISSION 1964 REPORT
Taken from Section 19, Act of 1901, 49 P.S. 79, Section 20, Act of 1901, 49 P.S. 80, which authorized suspension of the work and completion of the contract on the death, bankruptcy or insolvency of the owner or contractor, has been omitted entirely. Such contingencies and the right to affirm or disaffirm a contract will now be governed by the agreements of the parties and by existing bankruptcy and decedents' estates law.
