2014 House Bill 5460

Senate Roll Call 932: Passed

To expand to local road agencies a requirement to warranties "where possible" from contractors for road construction and preservation projects valued at more than $1 million. Under current law the warranty requirement only applies to the state Department of Transportation. Also, to require the Department of Transportation to give extra assistance (possibly including grants and loans) to "disadvantaged" businesses that bid on state funded road projects; and to take other step to steer more state-funded road work to such firms, including annual consultations with certain ethnic- and race-based organizations.
