|SFAA Addressing Proposed Bond Threshold Increase and P3 Pilot Program in Vermont|
SFAA is addressing HB 917, which would increase the bond threshold from $100,000 to $500,000. As drafted, the bill would have provided for a $1 million bond threshold. The bill also would provide for a pilot program for the Agency of Transportation to enter into public-private partnerships (P3s) for transportation infrastructure projects. The state legislature would set the requirements and would have to approve each P3 project, unless the project will have a project lifetime cost that is less than $2 million or the project has been approved in the most recently adopted Transportation Program. The bill does not specify a bonding requirement for this P3 program. The program would expire on July 1, 2023.
