Bill summary

Senate amendment amends the 2nd edition as follows.

Amends proposed GS 143-129(b1), concerning public construction, repair, or purchases that require the estimated expenditure of public monies equal to or exceeding $50,000, to require political subdivisions to notify, by regular or electronic mail or by posting to a website or service that generates notice, persons or businesses located within the respective jurisdictional boundaries of the political subdivision if the person or business made a written request to the clerk of the board of the political subdivision or the clerk's designee for notice of construction or repair work, or the purchase of apparatus, supplies, materials, or equipment being bid subject to the notification requirement (previously phrased as inviting proposals by notification rather than notice; did not include notification by posting on a website; and did not include specific requirements for persons or businesses to request notification). Now requires the notice to be sent at least seven full days before the contract award rather than the opening of bids. Requires the notices to contain a description of the requested construction or repair work, or purchase of apparatus, supplies, materials, or equipment, rather than referencing the information required of other public contract advertisements set out in subsection (b).
