  Bill to Address Attorneys’ Fees Awards in Bond Claims Introduced in Washington 

SB 6428 has been introduced in Washington, which would place reasonable limits on the award of attorney fees’ against sureties. The bill provides that the rights granted under current procurement law would be the exclusive remedy for recovering attorneys' fee for all disputes, including but not limited to coverage disputes involving a performance or payment bond required under the Little Miller Act.
