Bill Summary Details

Local Government Public Construction Works (Watch)

CS/CS/SB 504 (Perry) and CS/CS/HB 279 (Smith, D.) require a local government, in deciding whether it is in the public’s best interest for the local government to perform a public building construction project using its own services, to fully account for all costs associated with performing and completing the work, including the cost of direct materials to be used in the construction. The bills clarify that a local government shall list all other governmental entities that may have additional permits or fees generated by the project when issuing a bidding document. (Branch)
