Prevailing Wage Transparency
Sacramento, CA — Senator Tom Berryhill has introduced legislation that would require the Department of Industrial Relations to post a full list of statutes on its website related to mandated state construction wages, or prevailing wage.
Prevailing wage statutes are in place for numerous government code sections, including Fish and Game Code, Streets and Highway Code, Water Code and Labor Code.
“SB 1370 will make it easier for businesses to determine whether their project is subject to prevailing wage,” claims Berryhill. “Having a one-stop shop for all prevailing wage statutes will save time, get projects going, and put people to work.”
SB 1370 passed the Senate Labor Committee with a 4-0 vote and will next be heard in the Senate Appropriations Committee. Berryhill’s District 14 includes Tuolumne County.
