Alternative Public Works Reauthorization

The House Capital Budget Committee held a hearing today on Substitute HB 1506 to reauthorize the alternative public works law. This law allows certain state and local agencies to use design-build, general contractor/construction manager and job order contracting procurement methods. The AIA Washington participated in the development of this bill through the Capital Projects Advisory Review Board. Prospects for the bill look positive. The bill is expected to next be heard by the House Appropriations Committee.
