The bill requires a complex and slanted “analysis” that would have to be done by public agencies when such situations arise, and the complexity of this analysis would nearly ensure that the work would be kept in-house.
As an AGC member, we need your help in defeating this anti-contracting-out piece of legislation. You can help make this happen by contacting your State Senator today!
Tell your Senator to SUPPORT an amendment that AGC and its allies are promoting and/or to OPPOSE the overall bill. The amendment simply exempts public-works construction (RCW 39.04); alternative public-works contracting (RCW 39.10); contracts for architectural and engineering services (RCW 39.80); and HVAC, plumbing and electrical services from the effects of the bill.
We encourage you to please share this action alert with others within your company. The more information that we’re able to provide, the better. When we all work together we can take steps to both strengthen and support the men and women in the construction industry.
