I spent the day at Six Flags, but it’s good to see that the Assembly has been at work improving our state.
MADISON — The Assembly Labor Committee approved a measure that would eliminate Wisconsin’s prevailing wage law. The committee voted Wednesday 5-4 with Republicans in favor advancing the bill. Rep. John Spiros (R-Marshfield) joined Democrats in voting against the measure.
Meanwhile, Governor Walker is signaling to the legislature that he supports a full repeal.
MADISON (AP) — Gov. Scott Walker says he will sign a prevailing wage repeal bill if it passes the Legislature.
Laurel Patrick in a statement Wednesday said Walker has discussed the repeal with lawmakers and has considered supporting it in the state budget. Walker has previously said prevailing wage wasn’t a priority.
On a side note, if this passes the Assembly despite Speaker Vos’ active opposition and claim that the votes aren’t there, the caucus should consider whether he is still the right guy for the job as Speaker.
