DIGEST OF SB451 (Updated February 10, 2009 3:02 pm - DI 84)

Government contracts. Provides that the maximum term of a guaranteed energy cost savings contract or a utility efficiency program is 20 years. (Current law provides for maximum terms of ten 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.)
