(4) Has made good faith efforts to recruit and employ,
and to encourage any contractors or subcontractors to recruit
and employ, workers from the local labor market for
employment during the construction phase.
(5) Has demonstrated that individuals employed by the
taxpayer or any contractor or subcontractor for the
construction, reconstruction, demolition, alteration or
repair of the facility have been paid the prevailing minimum
wage rate for each craft or classification as determined by

Prevailing Wage Act.
Amend Bill, page 3, by inserting between lines 20 and 21
"Unit." One thousand cubic feet of natural gas at a
temperature of 60 degrees Fahrenheit and an absolute pressure of
14.73 pounds per square inch, in accordance with American Gas
Association standards and according to Boyle's law for the
measurement of gas under varying pressures with deviations
therefrom as follows:
(1) The average absolute atmospheric pressure shall be
assumed to be 14.4 pounds to the square inch, notwithstanding
the actual elevation or location of point of delivery above
sea level or variations in the atmospheric pressure.
(2) The temperature of the gas passing the meters shall
be determined by the continuous use of a recording
thermometer installed so that the thermometer may properly
record the temperature of the gas flowing through the meters.
The arithmetic average of the temperature recorded each 24-
hour day shall be used in computing gas volumes. If a
recording thermometer is not installed, or if installed and
not operating properly, an average flowing temperature of 60
degrees Fahrenheit shall be used in computing gas volume.
(3) The specific gravity of the gas shall be determined
by tests made by the use of an Edwards or Acme gravity
balance annually or at intervals as are found necessary in
practice. Specific gravity shall be used in computing gas
volumes.
(4) The deviation of the natural gas from Boyle's law
shall be determined by tests annually or at other shorter
intervals as are found necessary in practice. The apparatus
and the method to be used in making the tests shall be in

Standards of the Department of Commerce or Report No. 3 of
