CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2021–2022 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 1396


Introduced by Assembly Member Levine

February 19, 2021


An act to amend Section 2600 of the Public Contract Code, relating to public contracts.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 1396, as introduced, Levine. Skilled and trained workforce requirements.
Existing law establishes requirements that apply when a public entity is required by statute or regulation to obtain an enforceable commitment that a bidder, contractor, or other entity will use a skilled and trained workforce to complete a contract or project. Existing law also authorizes a public entity to require that a bidder, contractor, or other entity use a skilled and trained workforce to complete a contract or project, regardless of whether the public entity is required to do so by a statute or regulation.
This bill would make a nonsubstantive change to those provisions.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.

 Section 2600 of the Public Contract Code is amended to read:

2600.
 (a) This chapter applies when a public entity is required by statute or regulation to obtain an enforceable commitment that a bidder, contractor, or other entity will use a skilled and trained workforce to complete a contract or project.
(b) A public entity may require a bidder, contractor, or other entity to use a skilled and trained workforce to complete a contract or project project, regardless of whether the public entity is required to do so by a statute or regulation.
