The Construction Employers of America (CEA), a coalition of seven union construction associations including FCA, submitted comments to the DOL in support of their “Updating the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts Regulations” notice of proposed rulemaking.
Per the CEA’s cover letter:
“The CEA has long advocated for many of the proposed regulatory reforms endorsed in our comments and for a stronger Davis-Bacon Act, as well as for widespread prevailing wage laws across the nation. We have also advocated in our comments and in Congress for sufficient budgetary support for the Department of Labor’s survey, wage calculation, and enforcement role in meeting the statutory promise of the Davis-Bacon Act. CEA provides these comments in support of the DOL’s Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Updating the Davis-Bacon and Related Acts Regulations, 87 Fed. Reg. 15698 (March 18, 2022) (hereafter “Proposed DBA Rule”). As outlined in detail below, CEA enthusiastically supports many of the revisions included in the Proposed DBA Rule.”
