Sunset date for transit operator design-build statute extended to 2015

On October 11, 2009, Governor Schwarzenegger signed into law AB 729 (Evans) extending the sunset date on the design-build statute applicable to public transit operators to January 1, 2015.  The full text of the bill can be reviewed here.  This marks the second extension of the sunset date.  The transit operator design-build statute was adopted in 2000 pursuant to AB 958 (Scott), and included a sunset date of January 1, 2005.  In 2006, pursuant to AB 372 (Nation), the sunset date was extended to January 1, 2011.  It appears that the California Legislature is gaining comfort with design-build in the public sector.
