MEMORANDUM

Posted: January 9, 2015 10:54 AM
From: Representative Matthew E. Baker
To: All House members
Subject: Prevailing Wage
 
In the near future, I plan to introduce legislation (former HB 590) to amend the Prevailing Wage Act to clarify that it does not apply to public works involving projects by or on behalf of entities subject to the Health Care Facilities Act as well as Articles IX and X of the Public Welfare Code including, but not limited to, hospitals, cancer treatment centers, nursing homes, and assisted living residences.

It is my experience that the aforementioned entities are often the recipients of state funds (i.e., agency grants, RACP, etc.) for various capital improvement projects. Unfortunately, due to the applicability of our state prevailing wage requirements, the costs associated with paying prevailing wage rates often inflate the costs of these projects to the extent that financial benefit of the state grant award is often negated.

I have attached a copy of the legislation for your review.
