The Ohio General Assembly has enacted H.B. 80, requiring that all construction managers, contractors and subcontractors (regardless of tier) be enrolled in a drug-free workplace program to be able to do public construction work in Ohio. The law becomes effective March 29, 2007.

Consequences of a failure to do so are grave as it is to be considered a breach of contract and further can be considered in determining a bidder non-responsible for a five-year period.

Companies performing public work without being enrolled could find themselves going unpaid for their work and effectively banned from future public work.
