|Subject:||Prevailing Wage Uniformity & Fairness (Previously HB 1000)|
I will be re-introducing legislation (previous HB 1000) 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 of 2013 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 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.
