HOUSE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 120

(By Delegates Campbell, Barker, Boggs, Border, Canterbury, Carmichael, Eldridge, Evans, Guthrie, Hatfield, Iaquinta, Klempa, Kominar, Mahan, Marshall, Miley, Morgan, Paxton, Perdue, M. Poling, Reynolds, Ross, Spencer, Staggers, Stephens, Talbott, Varner, Webster, Wells and White)




Requesting the Joint Committee on Government and Finance study reciprocity for small businesses, women-owned businesses and minority-owned businesses who receive preferences in other states for government contracts.

Whereas, Many West Virginia businesses are small, women and minority-owned businesses that provide a major source of jobs in West Virginia; and
Whereas, For small, women and minority-owned businesses opportunities and capital funding are significantly more difficult to access; and
Whereas, States such as Virginia promote access to state contracting opportunities for small, women and minority-owned businesses and ensure fairness in the procurement process; and
Whereas, Providing small, women and minority-owned businesses equal opportunity for participation in the purchasing policies and procurement process of the state can help improve the functioning of the economy and enhance these small, women and minority-owned businesses; and
Whereas, Providing reciprocity and opportunities for small, women and minority-owned businesses based in other states where that state offers small, women and minority-owned businesses based in West Virginia the same opportunities can further enhance these businesses; therefore, be it
Resolved by the Legislature of West Virginia:
That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance is hereby requested to study reciprocity for small businesses, women-owned businesses and minority-owned businesses who receive preferences in other states for government contracts; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Joint Committee on Government and Finance report to the regular session of the Legislature, 2010, on its findings, conclusions and recommendations, together with drafts of any legislation necessary to effectuate its recommendations; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the expenses necessary to conduct this study, to prepare a report and to draft necessary legislation be paid from legislative appropriations to the Joint Committee on Government and Finance.
