American Legislative Exchange Council model legislation.
Lawmakers eye end to state's prevailing wage laws. (Wisconsin State Journal, 3/29/2015)
Charles and David Koch have issued their marching orders.
The Assembly sponsor of the legislation, Rep. Rob Hutton, R-Brookfield, said a majority of his GOP colleagues in both houses favor eliminating three state laws requiring payment of prevailing wages in the construction of roads and government buildings.
Republican lawmakers who control legislatures in Michigan and Indiana are considering similar measures, while Illinois’ newly elected Republican governor, Bruce Rauner, has called for changing that state’s prevailing wage requirement. Laurel Patrick, a spokeswoman for Gov. Scott Walker, said he is considering the issue.
