SB 1

Senate
Year: 
2012

SB 1 would have allowed companies bidding on state contracts of $1 million or more to receive a preference on their bid if 90% or more of their workers were residents of Colorado.  An additional preference would have been given if they provided health insurance and retirement benefits, and for construction contracts, another additional preference if they provided a training or apprenticeship program.

The bill passed the Senate but was killed in the House.
