Bill provides for expedited permitting and contracting for local bridge repair

HB 1851 provides for expedited permitting of local government bridges that are rated as structurally deficient. In particular the bill exempts repairs to those bridges from SEPA in certain circumstances, and provides authority for cities to use expedited bidding procedures by selecting three competent bidders rather than a full public bidding process.

The bill is scheduled for public hearing in the House Environment Committee at 1:30 pm on February 9 where AWC intends to express support for the bill.
