Public-Private Transportation Act; receipt of competing proposals; disclosure of major business points. Requires that within 30 days of the receipt of an unsolicited proposal for the development or operation of a qualified transportation facility, a responsible public entity shall post a public notice of the unsolicited proposal on the Department of General Service's electronic procurement website and provide 120 days for the submission of any competing proposals. The bill specifies that the notice is to include specific information regarding the nature, timing, and scope of the qualifying transportation facility, and that the responsible public entity must afford opportunities for public comment on the proposals submitted. The bill also requires that once the negotiation phase for the development of an interim or a comprehensive agreement is complete and a decision to award has been made by a responsible public entity, the responsible public entity is required to post the major business points of the interim or comprehensive agreement. The bill contains technical amendments. Read the Bill »
