LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1223, Caballero. Construction contract payments: Internet Web site posting.
Existing law imposes specified requirements on state agencies regarding payment of construction contracts. Existing law also requires the Department of General Services to publish in the California State Contracts Register notice of progress payments made to prime contractors.
This bill would require, within 10 days of making a construction contract payment, a state agency that maintains an Internet Web site to post on its Internet Web site the project for which the payment was made, the name of the construction contractor or company paid, the date the payment was made or the date the state agency transmitted instructions to the Controller or other payer to make the payment, the payment application number or other identifying information, and the amount of the payment. The bill would exempt from these provisions construction contracts valued below $25,000 and specified progress payments published in the California State Contracts Register under existing law.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: YES   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:
