Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2013 - 2014 Regular Session


Posted: January 29, 2013 03:47 PM
From: Senator Michael L. Waugh
To: All Senate members
Subject: Prevailing Wage
I am reintroducing two bills that amend the Commonwealth’s prevailing wage law to assist school districts in the effort to control costs.

If you have any questions regarding any of these bills, please contact Greg Beckenbaugh in my office at 787-3817 or gbeckenbaugh@pasen.gov .

Document #1

Introduced as SB501

Description: *The first bill was Senate Bill 795 during the 2011-12 session of the General Assembly. Under this bill, certain political bodies – those subdivisions or authorities created by one or more political subdivisions – are exempt from the prevailing wage requirements. Those political subdivisions may, by ordinance or resolution, choose to “opt in” regarding the prevailing wage requirements. Co-sponsors of Senate Bill 795 were Senators Alloway, Baker, Eichelberger, Folmer, Mensch and Vance.


Document #2

Introduced as SB499

Description: *The second bill, which was Senate Bill 796, takes a different approach. It gives a local government the option to “opt out” of the prevailing wage requirements by ordinance or resolution, and require it to notify the Department of Labor and Industry if it chooses to do so. Co-sponsors of Senate Bill 796 were Senators Alloway, Baker, Eichelberger, Folmer, Mensch and Vance.
