DIGEST OF HB1254 (Updated April 13, 2009 6:49 pm - DI 84)

Energy savings contracts. Provides that the maximum term of a guaranteed energy cost savings contract or utility efficiency program is 20 years. (Current law provides for maximum terms of 10 and 15 years.) Amends the statute governing local public works projects to state that a political subdivision or its agencies may: (1) participate in a utility efficiency program or may enter into a guaranteed savings contract as provided by law; and (2) enter into a design-build contract as permitted by law instead of awarding a public works contract. Provides that a "conservation measure" includes installation of insulation in a political subdivision's facility. (Under current law, the definition of "conservation measure" includes only insulation of school facilities.) Provides that a political subdivision that, with respect to certain public work projects that cost less than $400,000, complies with public purchasing statutes is not required to comply with public work statutes.
