Timeline for Correcting Library of Virginia Building Issues (language only)

Item 58 #1c

Item 58 #1c

Administration, Secretary of

Page 34, after line 7, insert:
"The Secretary of Administration, in consultation with the Secretary of Education, the Office of the Attorney General, and third party professional engineers with experience in the field of building environmental controls, shall prepare a report outlining plans, including a schedule of steps and events, which are to be implemented with a view toward corrective actions addressing remaining design and construction issues associated with the maintenance and operation of the Library of Virginia building in Richmond.  The Secretaries shall report to the Governor and the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees no later than August 1, 2004.”

(This amendment requires the Secretaries of Administration and Education to resolve the environmental control issues at the Library of Virginia. These environmental control issues are potentially due to design and construction flaws in the building, which is currently the subject of negotiations between the administration and the architects, engineers and contractors. Changes in operating practices can mitigate the impact of these difficulties pending resolution of the design and construction questions. A related amendment is found at Item 256 #1c.)
