SB 781 - This act authorizes any political subdivision to use a design-build contractor for waste water and water treatment projects. The Department of Economic Development is required to consider design-build waste water or water treatment projects when disbursing grants under the Community Development Block Grant program.

The Department of Natural Resources is prohibited from precluding design-build or sole source contracts from being considered for funding from the Water and Wastewater Loan Fund.

This act is substantially similar to SB 398 (2015).
