2013 House Bill 4174: Repeal “prevailing wage” law
  1. Introduced by Rep. Bradford Jacobsen (R) on February 5, 2013, to repeal the state “prevailing wage” law, which prohibits awarding government contracts to contractors who submit the lowest bid unless the contractor pays "prevailing wages," which are based on regional union pay scales that tend to be above the market rate. House Bill 4172 contains the repeal; this bill revises the school code to reflect the repeal.
    • Referred to the House Commerce Committee on February 5, 2013.
