2021 House Bill 4594

Re-impose “prevailing wage” mandate on government contracts

Introduced in the House

March 25, 2021

Introduced by Rep. Brenda Carter (D-29)

To effectively repeal <a href=" https://www.michiganvotes.org/2018-LIP-2">the law</a> enacted by 2018 Legislative Initiative Petition 2, which itself repealed a state “prevailing wage” law that prohibited awarding government contracts to contractors who submit the lowest bid unless the contractor pays wages based on union pay scales that local union officials represent as prevalent in a particular area. The bill would place this mandate back in state statute.

Referred to the Committee on Workforce, Trades, and Talent
