California Committee to Consider Bill on Prevailing Wage Law
The California Assembly Committee on Labor and Employment is expected to consider S.B. 360 today. The bill would extend the deadline of particular provisions of prevailing wage law that exempted certain residential and low-income housing projects. Click here for the most recent version of the bill.
S.B. 975, which became effective on January 1, 2002, subjected many types of affordable housing development to state prevailing wages law for the first time, with certain limited exemptions, which are set to expire December 31, 2003. S.B. 360 would extend those exemptions by one year to sunset on December 31, 2004.
Interested parties are encouraged to contact the Committee on Labor and Employment regarding S.B. 360. E-mail and other contact information for committee members can be found on the committee’s web site.
