Senate passes combo bill on design-build, Garwood-Sagle

The Senate has voted 27-3 in favor of SB 1147, the bill from Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Boise, to allow ITD to have design-build contracts. The bill also now includes the original thrust of HB 286, the measure from Rep. Frank Henderson, R-Post Falls, to pinpoint the starting point of the Garwood-to-Sagle freeway project on Highway 95 in North Idaho; that bill died today after the House refused to concur with an unrelated Senate amendment that had been attached, regarding a stretch of road in eastern Idaho. The Senate now has just one bill left to pass, an agency budget bill, before it can adjourn sine die, for the session.
