RETIREMENT MANDATE BIRTHED IN HOUSE TACKLED BY SENATEIn response to the debate currently being taken up in the Senate, the following comments may be attributed to National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) Connecticut state director, Andrew Markowski:
Prevailing Wage MandateFight against legislation to extend the costly prevailing wage mandate to private construction projects. While Connecticut’s prevailing wage law makes public construction bidding more complicated for small contractors, it also makes these projects more costly for taxpayers. Some advocates are trying to expand the state’s prevailing wage law to private projects as well. NFIB will stand opposed to any further expansion of the prevailing wage mandate, but especially against any intrusion into the private sector.
