Your Committee on Labor & Public Employment, to which was referred H.B. No. 987 entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO PROCUREMENT FILING FEE,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose of this measure is to provide a funding mechanism to partially cover the costs to conduct procurement bid challenge hearings by authorizing the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs to assess a non-refundable filing fee upon the party initiating the bid challenge for contracts with an estimated value of $500,000 or more.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing the effective date to January 1, 2050, to encourage further discussion; and
(2) Making technical, nonsubstantive amendments for clarity, consistency, and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Labor & Public Employment that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of H.B. No. 987, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as H.B. No. 987, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Labor & Public Employment,
