STATE DESIGN-BUILD LEGISLATION In an effort to achieve similar outcomes on their government construction projects, states have passed DB legislation and more state legislators have become familiar with alternatives to DBB. This is a direct result of the Clinger-Cohen Act. In the absence of any mandate for uniformity in state legislation relative to DB, each state has the authority and flexibility to pass its own DB legislation. As a result, the move toward DB project delivery has been slower at the state level than for federal agencies, and the legislative models and the breadth of authority vary greatly from state to state (Thomas 2010a).

Indb 38 11/17/2011 3:47:05 PM DESIGN-BUILD LEGISLATION • 39 The bills that were passed in 2009 were mostly for: (1) states with no or with very limited DB authority that passed bills to authorize or expand DB authority; and, (2) states with broad authority for DB that passed bills to extend DB authority to allow local governments to engage in DB project delivery, which includes the water and wastewater industry (Thomas 2010a). Forty-eight percent of the DB bills passed in 2009 authorized or expanded design-build authority at the local level (Thomas 2010a).
