2011 House Bill 4224: Repeal “prevailing wage” law
  1. Introduced by Rep. Amanda Price (R) on February 10, 2011, 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 union pay scales in a particular part of a geographic region. These wage rates may be above the market rate in other parts of the region.
    • Referred to the House Oversight, Reform, and Ethics Committee on February 10, 2011.
