Nevada governor signs prevailing wage, unions bills


Gov. Steve Sisolak (D-Nev.) signed bills into law at the end of May that raise the prevailing wage for workers on some public construction projects and remove restrictions on union-affiliated contractors by public agencies, according to

Assembly Bill 136 reduces the prevailing wage threshold contract amount for public projects from $250,000 to $100,000 and restores the prevailing wage for workers on public school projects to 100%. Under the previous law, those workers earned 90% of the prevailing wage.
