HR 4 Eliminating the Prevailing Wage Requirement on Federal Aviation Projects (Roll Call 157)



This amendment to the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Reauthorization Act eliminates the prevailing wage rate on FAA-contracted projects, as established under the Davis-Bacon Act. ACU supports the full repeal of the Davis-Bacon Act, a Depression-era price control that drives up taxpayer costs by mandating that employees of government contractors be paid artificially high wages, and supported this amendment. The House defeated the amendment on April 26, 2018 by a vote of 172-243.
