2015 Senate Bill 3

Senate Roll Call 173: Passed

To repeal the state “prevailing wage” law, which prohibits awarding government contracts to contractors who submit the lowest bid unless the contractor pays wages based on pay scales that local union officials represent as prevalent in a particular area, but which tend to be above the market rate. The Senate added a modest appropriation, which has the effect of making the bill "referendum-proof".
