Scott Livingston '75 is quoted in The Washington Post criticizing Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley's proposal to seek out private partners to build, operate and maintain roads, bridges, schools, government buildings and other public assets.

"It would let state agencies circumvent competitive bidding altogether simply by having a government official designate a project as a ‘public-private partnership,' ” said Livingston. "This is a dangerous retreat from established safeguards.”

Scott Livingston helped write Maryland’s procurement laws after a series of corruption scandals - including one that led to the 1973 resignation of Vice President Spiro T. Agnew (R), a former Maryland governor.
