Defend the Pennsylvania Separations Act - Oppose HB 710 & HB1237
Attacks on the Pennsylvania Separations Act continue within the PA Legislature. 

House Bill 710 would eliminate compliance with the Separations Act by raising existing thresholds to $250,000. By increasing the threshold by such a large amount, it is essentially the same as repealing separations act for those projects that fall below it.  The Separations Act currently requires that nearly all public construction projects be awarded to 4 separate prime contractors (HVAC, electrical, plumbing and general). The current approach saves taxpayers money by eliminating mark-ups and allowing more contractors to bid. By breaking the project into smaller parts, it gives local contractors a shot at winning the bid.  

House Bill 1237, which establishes a Public-Private Partnership (P3) Infrastructure Board, also affects the Separations Act, stating that it shall not apply for P3 agreements.
