Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    After review of this legislation, there appears to be no real costs associated to this legislation as the contracts issued by the Purchasing Division on behalf of state agencies under its authority currently do not contain any of the language prohibited by the bill.
    The Purchasing Division processes contracts for state spending units under its authority in accordance with W.Va. Code 5A-3.
    To ensure compliance with all public entities, the legislature should consider including this provision in W.Va. Code 5-22-1, not 5A-3, since it would then address construction of all public improvement projects.

Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):



    To reiterate, by including this provision in W.Va. Code 5A-3, it would only address state spending units under the Purchasing Division’s authority. Entities, such as Higher Education, Division of Highways road construction, School Building Authority, counties, municipalities and other political subdivisions, would not be affected as written in this section of the Code.
    W.Va. 5-22-1 addresses construction of public improvements for all entities.
