Fines weighed over bids for rail hub

........................................................................................................................................................................................

The state Construction Industries Commission is scheduled to consider whether to impose fines against two out-of-state firms accused of licensing violations in bidding on a multimillion-dollar contract to build the Union Pacific rail hub in southern New Mexico.

After an unusual closed-door mediation in Albuquerque on Tuesday, the cases against Ames Construction of Burnside, Minn., and Sundt Construction, based in Tempe, Ariz., and a joint venture of the two firms, will now head to the commission for a possible vote at its meeting Wednesday in Albuquerque.

State attorney general spokesman Phil Sisneros said results of the mediation between the AG’s Office, representing the commission, and the companies involved are confidential.
