Current Bill Summary

SB 589 - This act is identical to SB 108 (1999), and allows political subdivisions in third classification counties to be exempt from the state prevailing wage law, if approved by the voters of that political subdivision. Either approval of the governing body or a petition signed by 10% of all registered voters in that political subdivision is required before the proposal could be submitted to the voters for approval. The ballot language provides that the prevailing wage law on construction projects involving federal funds would not be affected.
