House of Representatives
Session of 2015 - 2016 Regular Session


Posted: February 4, 2015 11:19 AM
From: Representative Stephen Bloom
To: All House members
Subject: Prevailing Wage Uniformity & Fairness (Previously HB 1915)
In light of the long-overdue increase in the prevailing wage threshold on transportation projects, I will be re-introducing legislation (previously HB 1915) which will ensure uniformity and fairness with respect to all other taxpayer-funded projects currently subject to the Prevailing Wage Law. Under my bill, the prevailing wage threshold will be raised from $25,000 to $100,000 on any projects not already covered by the historic threshold increase embodied in the Act 89 transportation bill.

Raising the prevailing wage threshold in a fair and uniform manner for all covered projects will avoid the unnecessary administrative complexity and expense imposed by a new two-tiered threshold, while allowing school districts and municipal entities (and the property tax payers who fund them) to avail themselves of substantial savings and efficiency. Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation to restore prevailing wage uniformity and fairness.

Please join me in cosponsoring this piece of legislation.
