Bills in Committee April 8–12

Today, the Senate Appropriations Committee heard SB 7 then sent it to the committee’s suspense file due to the identified state cost. SB 7 would prohibit a charter city from receiving or using state funding or financial assistance for a construction project if the city has a voter-approved charter provision or ordinance that authorizes a contractor to not comply with state prevailing wage requirements on local construction projects funded by (non-state) city funds.
