New rules are being implemented for construction projects in Downtown Manhattan, with the intention of ensuring that high-quality work is done in a timely manner.

Governor George Pataki signed the "Coordinated Construction Act" Tuesday, which includes guidelines to make sure women and minority-owned businesses are involved in the rebuilding.

The act calls for competitive building contracts and a system of pre-qualified bidders to speed up the process.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says the law lets the city move forward quickly, safely and fairly as Lower Manhattan is rebuilt. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
