Bid limit increase bill bound for House

A bid limit increase bill cleared its initial hurdles in the legislative process.


Senate Local Government committee members passed Senate Bill 135, which increases the bid limit for certain public improvements to $100,000, on a 4-3 vote and the full Senate passed the bill on a 22-13 vote.


ASBSD supports the bill, which is an increase of $50,000 from the current statute limitation.


“The cost of construction rose almost three percent, just last year,” ASBSD Lobbyist Dick Tieszen testified. “The cost of doing business has increased significantly.”


Tieszen added that school districts “are in need of being to” complete projects in this financing area.


There was no opposition testimony during its committee hearing to SB 135, which now moves to the House for review.
