Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Highway Code. Provides that bids for State or federally funded road construction contracts shall include transportation costs itemized apart from the cost of the goods or materials transported.

 State Mandates Fiscal Note (Dept. of Commerce & Economic Opportunity)
 This legislation does not create a State mandate.

 Fiscal Note (Dept. of Transportation)
 The Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) implements approximately 800 construction contracts annually during the 112 day construction season. Each of those projects uses an average of 5 trucks over the course of an 8 hour work day. Generally, truckers negotiate an hourly rate that includes the cost of their labor and the truck itself costing on average between $85 and $95 an hour. If the language of the bill were applied to all trucking associated with a contract, that cost could jump to $125 per hour or more depending on how much the trucker charges for the service of their truck. Assuming an additional $35 an hour in the cost of trucking, IDOT's annual construction program costs would increase by $129 million. This estimate does not include estimated costs for delivery of items such as rebar, steel, ready mix concrete, and delivery of other commercially supplied construction materials. IDOT conservatively estimates that the cost of the Department's annual construction program could increase by as much as $250 million with the delivery of the items above included.
