2013 House Bill 4173: Repeal “prevailing wage” law
  1. Introduced by Rep. Peter MacGregor (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 references in a relate statute.
    • Referred to the House Commerce Committee on February 5, 2013.
