  Provisions Exempting Ohio DAS Projects from Procurement Rules Removed from Budget Bill 

In Ohio, the Senate Finance Committee removed the House amendment in the budget bill that would have allowed the Ohio Department of Administration (DAS) to set its own requirements for public works projects rather than follow the regulations of the Ohio Facilities Construction Commission as now is required by law. Effectively, DAS would have had broad authority to determine whether to bond its projects. The issue may resurface in the eventual conference committee for the budget bill since this is a change to the House-passed bill.
