|SFAA’s Bill in Indiana to Require Bonding in P3s Goes to Study|
Indiana HB 1301 would direct the Legislative Council to form an interim study committee to examine requiring performance and payment bonds for future public private partnership (P3) projects for the three P3 laws that SFAA sought to amend. As introduced, HB 1301 contained the amendments that SFAA drafted to require 100% bonds in all three P3 laws. The bill was amended twice to reduce the bond requirements from 100% to 50% and then down to 25% before it was amended again to send the issue to another study committee. HB 1301 has been sent to the Governor. There also are study provisions on bonding for any kind of P3 project in HB 1374 that the Governor has signed. HB 1374 also revises the existing law for the Indiana Finance Authority.
