Public-Private Partnership Enabling Legislation

This section of the BATIC Institute website provides onward links to the legislation content area of the Federal Highway Administration's (FHWA) Public-Private Partnership (P3) website and the National Conference of State Legislature’s (NCSL) P3 Legislation resources.

The FHWA P3 Legislation section website provides a brief overview and map of the 33 U.S. States, Washington D.C., and one U.S. territory that have enacted legislation enabling the use of P3s in the development of transportation improvements.

NCSL’s Public-Private Partnerships for Transportation: A Toolkit for Legislatures, published in December 2010, is a comprehensive analysis of legislative and statutory issues surrounding P3s for transportation projects. The toolkit provides expert guidance, dependable counsel and a compilation of best practices to assist state legislatures as they consider whether and how to pursue P3s in their states.

NCSL’s Public-Private Partnerships for Transportation: Categorization and Analysis of State Statutes, published in 2016, builds on the toolkit by categorizing and analyzing all P3 enabling state statutes. The report provides an overview of nearly 40 key elements of P3 enabling legislation and breaks down each state’s laws to demonstrate which key provisions each includes.
