Knowing government spending must always be under scrutiny, the House State Government Committee will take up the following procurement reform bills during its next meeting:
• House Bill 709
would require applicants for state contracts to submit a disclosure statement listing all campaign contributions made by the applicant or intermediary to any elected official, candidate for state or local office, or political committee.
• House Bill 1925
would authorize state procurement officials to consider a prospective contractor’s documented performance in other states or with other public entities prior to awarding, renewing or extending a Pennsylvania contract to that bidder.
• House Bill 2159
would ensure the emergency procurement process is only used in exigent circumstances.
• House Bill 2269
would require state officials to also consider a perspective contractor’s documented prior performance rather than just which bidder submitted the lowest bid.
Committee Chairman Rep. Seth Grove (R-York) will be joined by members of the committee and authors of the bills.
Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 9 a.m.
Room 515, Irvis Office Building, Capitol Complex, Harrisburg
