House committee to consider a number of public contracting bills

On Friday, February 6 at 8 am, the House Capital Budget Committee will be holding a public hearing on a number of bills related to public contracting:

  • HB 1711 specifically allows a city to include criteria related to bidders’ qualifications and experience in determining bidder responsibility.
  • HB 1575 would require surety bonds to come from a surety insurer with a financial strength rating of at least A-.
  • HB 1754 would add building envelope to the list of building trades that a prime contractor must list for bids on public works.

If you have comments or concerns to share on any of these bills, please share them with Alison Hellberg prior to the hearing.
