Bill Seeking to Create a Public Notice Requirement for the use of Project Labor Agreements
March 12, 2018
On August 30, 2017, Representative Aaron Bernstine (R., Beaver, Butler, and Lawrence Counties) introduced House Bill 1751, which seeks to create a public notice requirement for public works project labor agreements (PLAs). The proposed law would require the contracting public agency to post notice of a PLA on its website at least 20 days prior to the solicitation of bids on a public project that the PLA will apply to. The Bill also proposes to nullify a PLA when notice is not provided. The Bill is currently being considered by the House Committee on Labor and Industry.
Babst Calland will continue to monitor HB 1751 as well as other proposed legislation that may impact the construction industry and post updates on this Blog whenever they become available.
