DGS shall conduct this review in consultation with state and local government public bodies, the Office of the Attorney General, and representatives from the private sector construction community, to include contractors, insurers, and legal representatives. DGS shall report its findings and recommendations to the Chairmen of the House Appropriations and Senate Finance Committees, and the Governor by December 31, 2019. JLARC shall provide oversight of, and assistance as needed to, DGS pursuant to the review and completion of the report.
