CONCORD, NH—Today, the New Hampshire Senate passed SB 271, 14-10. The legislation would require prevailing wages on state-funded public works projects.
Senator Feltes (D-Concord), prime sponsor of SB 217, released the following statement after the vote:
“Prevailing wage laws ensure that construction workers receive fair wages and help keep New Hampshire taxpayer dollars going to local workers and local companies. It’s great to see the Senate take the first step to make tax dollars work for New Hampshire working families by joining our New England neighbors to enact this common sense policy.”
