House Bill 143

House Bill 143

by
Phil Haunschild
February 15, 2017

Bill description: This bill would amend the procedures for cooperative purchases, allowing state agencies to enter into agreements with other agencies in order to save on costs.

Rating: +1

Does it increase government spending (for objectionable purposes) or debt? Conversely, does it decrease government spending or debt?

House Bill 143, if implemented, would work as a cost-saving measure for the state. Allowing state agencies to enter into agreements with other government agencies would be a more efficient way of procuring property. The bill still requires that the agencies use competitive bidding procedures, but there could be additional economy-of-sale savings that result from agencies working together to procure property. In addition to possibly obtaining lower prices, state government could reduce duplicative administrative costs as well as transaction expenses. (+1)
