This is good news.
The Senate will introduce an amendment to the budget tomorrow that would add in prevailing wage changes proposed by Sen. Frank Lasee, a spokeswoman for Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald said.
“We believe it will pass,” Myranda Tanck said.
Lasee, R-De Pere, has proposed repealing the prevailing wage for local governments and using the federal wage for state projects.
It would be good if the Senate passed this first for two reasons. First, it is in the Senate that the vote is less certain, so let’s get it passed their first. Second, if the Senate passes it first, it helps dissuade Speaker Vos in the Assembly from monkeying with it.
