BILL NUMBER: SB 397, SD-1
INTRODUCED BY: Senate Committee on Public Safety, Intergovernmental, and Military Affairs
EXECUTIVE SUMMARY: Requires contractors and subcontractors to submit tax clearances as a condition of obtaining building permits for private developments exceeding a certain value. Requires contractors and subcontractors to submit additional tax clearances before final inspection of private developments exceeding a certain value. Contractors already need tax clearances to obtain and renew their licenses, and to bid or receive final payment on state or county government contracts. It is questionable whether these additional clearances are justified given the massive delays in the permitting process that already exist.
