Michigan Republicans just voted to take prevailing wages away from all construction workers on publicly funded projects across the state.
The legislature could have let the issue go to the ballot, but chose to take it up and approve it on Wednesday. Shortly after the Senate passed it 23-14, the House passed the measure 56-53.
Because the measure was proposed by the Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) through a petition process, it immediately becomes law – without the Governor’s signature.
