Bill Summary Details

Public Financing of Construction Projects (Watch)

SB 178 (Rodriguez) requires contractors to conduct a sea-level impact projection (SLIP) study on state-funded buildings within the coastal building zone. Buildings subject to this requirement would include construction projects of a municipality, county or any other public agency that is using state-appropriated funds for the project. The bill requires the Department of Environmental Protection to develop rules for conducting a SLIP study. In addition, DEP must also approve and publish copies of all SLIP studies for at least 10 years. (O'Hara)
