Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Under current law, the Department of Transportation must maintain an
inventory of completed designs for highway projects under the major highway
projects program and the reconditioning, reconstruction, and resurfacing projects
program. The estimated costs of the inventory of projects for each program must be
not less than 30 percent of the annual amount of funding provided to each program.
Under this bill, DOT must also maintain an inventory of not fewer than 50
designs in which at least 30 percent of the design work has been completed for
highway projects that are potential design-build projects.
For further information see the state fiscal estimate, which will be printed as
an appendix to this bill.

enact as follows:
84.01 (33) of the statutes is renumbered 84.01 (33) (am).
