    Key Vote 1: H.Amdt. 928 to H.R. 3524 - Prevents wage restrictions

    This amendment would prevent funds in the bill from being used to fund Davis-Bacon Act wage requirements. The Davis-Bacon Act is an obsolete and destructive wage control program which requires that employees be paid at the "prevailing local wage". Because this prevailing wage is usually artificially set by unions, Davis Bacon essentially forces government contractors to hire more expensive union labor, wasting taxpayer dollars.

    "Yea" votes scored.
