FIRST REGULAR SESSION
94TH GENERAL ASSEMBLY
D. ADAM CRUMBLISS, Chief Clerk
To amend chapter 227, RSMo, by adding thereto one new section relating to annual bid bonds for state highways and transportation commission construction and maintenance projects.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the state of Missouri, as follows:
Section A. Chapter 227, RSMo, is amended by adding thereto one new section, to be known as section 227.103, to read as follows:
227.103. 1. Notwithstanding any other provision of law to the contrary, the commission is authorized to accept an annual bid bond for its construction and maintenance projects. The commission shall prescribe the form and content of an annual bid bond under the provisions set forth in the Missouri standard specifications for highway construction, or its successor.
2. The commission is authorized to promulgate administrative rules to administer the provisions of this section. Any rule or portion of a rule, as that term is defined in section 536.010, RSMo, that is created under the authority delegated in this section shall become effective only if it complies with and is subject to all of the provisions of chapter 536, RSMo, and, if applicable, section 536.028, RSMo. This section and chapter 536, RSMo, are nonseverable and if any of the powers vested with the general assembly pursuant to chapter 536, RSMo, to review, to delay the effective date, or to disapprove and annul a rule are subsequently held unconstitutional, then the grant of rulemaking authority and any rule proposed or adopted after August 28, 2007, shall be invalid and void.
