SB 102S – Closing a Loophole in the Prevailing Wage Law

Before they went on the JFC recess, the Senate passed Senate Bill 102S by a vote of 15-4-2, with all Republicans either voting no or absent. The bill closes a loophole in the prevailing wage statute that was being used to pay workers below the prevailing wage by performing work offsite instead of onsite, regardless of whether it was necessary to do so.

In government contracting, a prevailing wage is defined as the hourly wage, usual benefits and overtime, paid to the majority of workers, laborers, and mechanics within a particular area.

The bill is now in the House Labor committee.
