Speaker Vos' Prevailing Wage Plan

Senator Steve Nass (R-Whitewater), Chairman of the Senate Labor and Government Reform Committee, issued the following statement on Speaker Vos' supposed compromise plan on reforming Wisconsin's antiquated prevailing wage laws:

"It's good to know that Speaker Vos has reached a compromise with the special interests on prevailing wage.  However, the Speaker's plan intentionally fails to save the taxpayers and local governments the most money on the costliest of construction projects.  I will stand with the taxpayers by only supporting a compromise that repeals prevailing laws on all units of local government.

I will not support a budget without the complete repeal for local governments."
