Gov. Justice announces approval of $80-million bond sale for West Virginia State Parks improvements

 

The West Virginia Economic Development Authority today approved the sale of up to $80 million in excess lottery revenue bonds to pay for repairs, maintenance and improvements to West Virginia’s state parks and forests.

 

“In the 2018 State of the State address I told you our state parks were in disrepair. We now have concrete plans on the table to do a major modernization of facilities in nearly all of our state parks over the next three years,” said Gov. Justice. “Our parks are a major part of the state’s tourism industry, and this will allow us to make them even more attractive to in-state and out-of-state visitors. This is great news for the parks and all of the communities and local businesses that support them as well.”

 

Gov. Justice signed Senate Bill 438 earlier this year which authorized the bond sale. The WVEDA was responsible for reviewing the proposed projects and approving the sale. The excess lottery revenue bonds are expected to be made available by the end of September.

 

“Much of the improvements are geared toward addressing significant levels of deferred maintenance identified over the past few years. Tourism is a major component of West Virginia’s economic development plan and bringing our state parks in line with the expectations of today’s tourists and travelers is an important part of that,” said Division of Natural Resources Director Steve McDaniel. “I thank Gov. Justice for taking the lead in making these much-needed repairs one step closer to reality.”

 

Every one of West Virginia’s 35 state parks, seven state forests and two rail trails will see improvements from this bond sale. Examples include: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) improvements; replacement and repairs of major structural concerns; electrical service upgrades and replacement; better recreational, interpretive and safety equipment; cabin, lodge and conference facility upgrades; internet connectivity equipment; water supply and wastewater system repairs; and construction, improvements and repairs to new and existing recreational facilities. The Division of Natural Resources estimates that these projects will cost about $60 million to complete.

 

AGC-Backed Change Order Bill to Become Law


On August 1, the Senate passed the fiscal year 2019 National Defense Authorization Act by a vote of 87-10, sending the defense bill to the president to sign into law. The bill includes the AGC-backed bipartisan legislation requiring federal agencies to publish their change order policy and procedures on any small federal construction contract. This legislation provides prospective federal construction contractors with the information they need to factor into their bids and offers the risk and resulting cost of delayed payment for change. Once signed into law, the changes will need to go through the rulemaking processes.

 

Some other notable provisions in the bill that are important to AGC members include:

 

Sec. 816 - Inclusion of best available information regarding past performance of subcontractors and joint venture partners. This section allows for past performance ratings for each partner of a joint venture when awarding Department of Defense contracts.

 

Sec. 880 - Use of lowest price technically acceptable source selection process. This section further limits federal agencies from using this process and requires agencies to adequately describe the minimum requirements for what amounts to “technically acceptable” in the procurement.

 

Sec. 878 - Procurement administrative lead time definition and plan. Requires a government-wide definition of Procurement Administrative Lead Time (PALT) and requires federal agencies to work with the Department of Defense and the General Services Administration to develop a plan for measuring and reporting on PALT.

 

Sec. 933, 934, 936 – Expediting the backlog of Security Clearances. These provisions are designed to expediate the backlog of nearly 700,000 background investigations and security clearances for agency and contract personnel. It will also require regular and transparent reports on the progress of these investigations.
