A two-year, $76 billion budget that Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R) signed in late September calls for the immediate repeal of the state’s prevailing wage law. An earlier version of the budget included a provision to sunset the prevailing wage law in September 2018, but Walker vetoed it.

The repeal applies to the prevailing wage requirement for workers on state-funded public construction projects. The Walker administration and lawmakers eliminated a similar requirement for local government-funded projects two years ago. Any projects that receive federal money still have to pay wages mandated by the Davis-Bacon Act.
