State law allows cities & counties to require developers to post a cash bond to insure that the public improvements on new developments are completed. Developers choose to post a cash bond, letter of credit, or surety bond to guarantee that there are funds available to complete the project improvements. Local official sets the rating of the bonds to financially protect their unit of government.

For these reasons, HBAI vehemently opposes any reversal of authority in the Public Construction Bond Act, such as that contained in HB3751. For these reasons, we respectfully request a NO Vote on its consideration.
