Defend the Pennsylvania Separations Act - Opposed HB 2172
Another attack on the Pennsylvania Separations Act is underway. This time the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education's (PASSHE) 14 universities would be exempt from multiple prime construction if House Bill 2172 was enacted. This legislation appears to be primarily about making changes to the PASSHE governance structure, but it also includes a section that would eliminate compliance with the Separations Act.  

The Separations Act requires that nearly all public construction projects be awarded to 4 separate prime contractors (HVAC, electrical, plumbing and general). This 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.  

We understand the bill will be voted on in the House Education Committee on Wednesday, April 29. Use this form to contact your state Representative to urge opposition to the bill.
