Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    The primary purpose of this legislation is to expand the resident vendor preference to a corporate vendor that maintains its headquarters or principle place of business within West Virginia, accounting for more than 50 percent of its revenues. The vendor’s bid must not exceed the lowest qualified bid from a non-resident vendor by more than two and one-half percent of the latter bid. The vendor has to certify the residency requirements of this subsection and make a written claim for this preference at the time the bid is submitted.
