SB 1150 - This act creates the "Private Attorney Retention Act". This act requires state agencies to use competitive bidding when contracting for legal services. State agencies shall not enter into a contract that exceeds $100,000 in any fiscal year without a specific appropriation for that purpose.

Any state agency using a private attorney must report certain information about the hours, fees and expenses of the private attorney to the Office of Administration for each fiscal year.

This act is similar to SB 977 (2000).
