AN ACT TO REQUIRE THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION TO COMPILE A PUBLIC STREET INFORMATION DATABASE AND TO UPDATE THE SUBDIVISION ROADS MANUAL REGULARLY, AND TO EXEMPT CERTAIN PROPRIETARY DESIGN WORK OR WORK PRODUCT SUBMITTED TO THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION FROM PUBLIC RECORDS TEMPORARILY.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Deletes the previous provisions, except for proposed GS 136-18.07 requiring the Department of Transportation (DOT) to regularly update its Subdivision Roads Minimum Construction Standards Manual and related pavement or other policies.
Enacts GS 136-18.06 requiring DOT to compile a readily available Public Street Information Database, operational by January 1, 2020. Requires the database to be updated monthly and reflect the status of all federally owned and either State-owned or maintained roads assigned a road number. Requires the database to reside on an existing database system.
Amends GS 132-1.2 to specify that public records laws do not require or authorize an agency to disclose information that reveals proprietary design work product included in a proposal submitted to DOT or any DOT intra-agency communications related to its review during the competitive bid process. Provides that confidential proprietary design work, work product, or intra-agency communications are subject to disclosure upon contract award, which is designated upon the competitive bid process's completion.
Makes conforming changes to the act's titles.
