Virginia Public Procurement Act; failure to pay unemployment taxes. Prohibits state agencies from contracting for goods and services from a nongovernmental source if that source, or any affiliate of the source, is required to remit unemployment taxes but fails or refuses to do so. The measure requires the Virginia Employment Commission to make a determination of whether a source is a prohibited source for failure or refusal to remit unemployment taxes and permits any aggrieved source to apply to the Commissioner of the Virginia Employment Commission for correction of the determination. The measure also provides that any source that fails to remit unemployment taxes for more than 10 covered employees shall be a prohibited source for a period of two years. Read the Bill »
