NFIB members have supported the concept of Wicks Law reform as a means to decrease the cost of public projects, thereby easing our state’s oppressive tax burden, especially at the local level. Providing state and local agencies with more freedom to choose between multiple and single contractors would allow them to realize significant savings on public works projects. The current Wick’s threshold level, set some four decades ago, is far too low, and the requirement that multiple contractors be used on all projects above this low threshold contributes in many cases to higher overall cost, delays, disputes between contractors and cost overruns.
