New Law Changes North Dakota CM-at Risk Bond Requirements

North Dakota SB 2147 revises the existing law for public improvements delivered under a construction manager at-risk contract to prohibit a governing body from requiring each contractor performing services on the project to provide a separate bond for the contractor's portion of it.
