Summary

The department of personnel and the department of transportation
are each required to establish policies regarding the global warming
potential for specific categories of eligible materials used to construct
certain public projects.
The department of personnel is required to establish a maximum
acceptable global warming potential for each category of eligible material

used in certain public projects under its purview. The bill specifies which
building materials are eligible materials. The department of personnel is
required to set the maximum acceptable global warming potential at the
industry average of global warming potential emissions for that material
and to express it as a number that states the maximum acceptable global
warming potential for each category of eligible material.
Specifications for solicitations for a public project requested by the
department of personnel are required to include that the global warming
potential for any eligible material that will be used in the project shall not
exceed the maximum acceptable global warming potential for that
material determined by the department.
The department of transportation is required to develop policies to
determine, track, and record greenhouse gas emissions for each category
of eligible materials used in certain public projects under its purview in
a manner consistent with criteria in an environmental product declaration.
The department of personnel and the department of transportation
are both are required to strive to achieve continuous reduction in
greenhouse gas emissions in construction materials over time for the
projects under their purview.
For solicitations for certain public projects under the purview of
the department of personnel or the department of transportation issued
after certain dates, the contractor that is awarded the contract is required
to submit a current environmental product declaration for each eligible
material proposed to be used in the public project.
A contractor that is awarded a contract for a public project is
prohibited from installing any eligible material on the project until the
contractor submits an environmental product declaration for that material.
The department of personnel and the department of transportation
are required to annually report to the general assembly regarding the
implementation of the bill.
