 2  contracts; requirement with respect to contract award; bond

 3  requirements; defaults; damage assessments.--

 4         (1)(a)  A surety bond shall be required of the

 5  successful bidder in an amount equal to the awarded contract

 6  price. However, the department may choose, in its discretion

 7  and applicable only to multiyear maintenance contracts, to

 8  allow for incremental annual contract bonds that cumulatively

 9  total the full, awarded multiyear contract price. For a

10  project for which the contract price is $250,000 $150,000 or

11  less, the department may waive the requirement for all or a

12  portion of a surety bond if it determines the project is of a

13  noncritical nature and nonperformance will not endanger public

14  health, safety, or property. If the secretary or the

15  secretary's designee determines that it is in the best

16  interests of the department to do so and that a reduced

17  bonding requirement for a project will not endanger public

18  health, safety, or property, the department may waive the

19  requirement of a surety bond in an amount equal to the awarded

20  contract price for a project having a contract price of $250

21  million or more, and, in its place, may set a surety bond

22  amount that is a portion of the total contract price and

23  provide an alternate means of security for the balance of the

24  contract amount which is not covered by the surety bond or

25  provide for incremental surety bonding and provide an

26  alternate means of security for the balance of the contract

27  amount which is not covered by the surety bond. Such

28  alternative means of security may include letters of credit,

29  United States bonds and notes, parent company guaranties, and

30  cash collateral. The department may require alternate means of

31  security if a surety bond is waived. The surety on such bond

11  of a cashier's check, bank money order of any state or

13  department shall adopt rules to implement this subsection.

14  Such rules shall include provisions under which the department

15  shall refuse to accept bonds on contracts when a surety

16  wrongfully fails or refuses to settle or provide a defense for

17  claims or actions arising under a contract for which the

18  surety previously furnished a bond.

19         Section 5.  Subsection (1) of section 338.2275, Florida

20  Statutes, is amended to read:

22         (1)  Legislative approval of the department's tentative

23  work program that contains the turnpike project constitutes

24  approval to issue bonds as required by s. 11(f), Art. VII of

25  the State Constitution. No more than $6 billion of bonds may

26  be outstanding to fund approved turnpike projects. Turnpike

27  projects approved to be included in future tentative work
