SB 29 - This act modifies the definition of "construction" for purposes of prevailing wage laws. The definition of "maintenance work" is also modified to include repairs that restore existing facilities to a previous state or condition or improve the utility or enhance the appearance of existing facilities when the size, type or extent of the existing facilities is not thereby changed or increased. Maintenance work further includes any improvement done that does not exceed the original cost of the facility.

This act is substantially similar to SB 606 (2016) and contains provisions which are similar to HB 1306 (2015).
