Wisconsin Lawmakers to Vote on PLA Bill on Thursday

As I reported on yesterday on the blog, a bill is being considered in Wisconsin that would prohibit local governments from using project labor agreements (PLA's) as part of the bidding process on public construction projects.  Wisconsin lawmakers on the Senate’s Committee on Labor and Regulatory Reform are scheduled to vote on that bill this Thursday.    Because this is yet another attack on unions, many lawmakers are voicing opposition, including Milwaukee Alderman Cavalier Johnson.

I will be following the progress of this proposed bill and report more on it as it develops.
