HB 293CommitteeBriggs KingThis Act replaces the prevailing wage survey method of setting the prevailing wage with a method based on payroll information currently being provided to the Department of Labor. Also, this Act removes the prevailing wage lock-in authorized by House Substitute No. 1 for House Bill No. 145 (148th General Assembly). This Act also removes the Prevailing Wage Advisory Committee (“Committee”) from the Delaware Code. The Committee was established to advise the General Assembly how the prevailing wage survey may be improved or if the survey should be eliminated. The Committee reported in January 2016 that “the best option is to continue the survey for 2016 and report back to the legislature in the future.” Because this Act replaces the prevailing wage survey, the Committee is no longer needed.
