Current Bill Summary

SB 1187 - This act establishes that the state or any political subdivision of the state shall encourage the distribution of plans and specifications for the construction, remodel, or repair of facilities to all available plan rooms and electronic plan rooms in order to encourage meaningful competition, diversity, and the lowest responsible bids for such projects.

No agreement shall be made by a public body or any body supported by tax dollars that would restrict the sources or availability of plans and specifications, or limit the distribution of plans and specifications to contractors, subcontractors and suppliers to a single or limited number of reprographic firms, plan rooms, or electronic plan rooms, unless specified by law.

Any existing contract which would be in violation of this act upon its enactment shall not be renewed.
