CA senator amends bill to punish border wall contractors

A California state senator has taken the bold step to amend a bill that will outright allow discrimination against any contractor who does work on the proposed southern border wall with Mexico.

State Sen. Ricardo Lara, D-Bell Gardens has added a very distinctive clause in Senate Bill 30, which was originally for requirement of voter approval for federally funded projects:

“This bill would additionally prohibit the state, commencing January 1, 2018, from awarding or renewing a contract for goods or services with any person, as defined, that at the time of bid or proposal for a new contract or renewal of an existing contract is providing or has provided goods or services to the federal government for the construction of a federally funded infrastructure project along California’s southern border,” the amendment read.

In layman’s terms, this would allow the state to blackball any company or person who is involved with the construction of one of Donald Trump’s campaign promises.

In a released statement, Lara cites his reasons as “giving the state a louder voice to say that building a wasteful and unnecessary wall would be a huge mistake,” and “Another wall will delay cargo delivery, slow down business and take away valuable jobs.”
