2013 House Bill 4236: Restrict privatization of state services
  1. Introduced by Rep. Jim Townsend (D) on February 12, 2013, to prohibit the privatization of government services unless the savings to the state would be at least 10 percent of the cost of the same service being performed by government workers. The bill would also require any state department or agency seeking to privatize any state services to conduct a pre-privatization cost-benefit analysis and submit it to the House and Senate Appropriations Committees beforehand; and also to impose extensive disclosure and auditing mandates on any contractor who receives such a contract.
    • Referred to the House Oversight Committee on February 12, 2013.
