Unit price contracting bill passes Senate, onto the House

SB 6143, Sen. Dean Takko (R-Kelso), passed the Senate unanimously Wednesday evening, February 7. This city-supported bill now moves to the House of Representatives. SB 6143 would grant cities the ability to procure certain public works utilizing unit-priced contracts.

An amendment was added to the bill encouraging cities and towns to invite bids for unit-priced contracts from minority and women contractors whenever possible.

AWC is very grateful to Sen. Takko for ushering this legislation so seamlessly through the Senate and looks forward to working the bill in the House.
