SHN supports AB 334, changes to Section 1090 conflict laws

SHN urges our clients--especially municipal, county, and special district clients--to support AB 334, which will clarify conflict of interest laws related to public works infrastructure procurement.  Currently, Section 1090 precludes professionals from participating in subsequent phases of projects if they have had any involvement in a previous phase.  This means that small and rural municipalities must contract with another professional firm, which might have little or no prior experience with the project.  The new firm's fees will include time to “come up to speed” and the time delay and increased fees are things that small and rural municipalities and districts cannot afford.  Download an AB 334 fact sheet here, and contact This email address is being protected from spambots.
