The Davis Bacon Act of 1931 requires that workers on federally funded public works projects be paid the prevailing area wage rates.  On March 18, 2022, the Department of Labor announced a substantial overhaul of the Davis Bacon Act that will be the most significant expansion in the history of Davis Bacon. 

Hesse Martone President and CEO Andy Martone presented an update on the proposed rule changes to the Davis Bacon Act to the Illinois Road and Transportation Builders Association, the Associated General Contractors of Illinois, the Associated General Contractors of Missouri, The Associated General Contractors of Michigan and the Southern Illinois Builders Association.  

The Department of Labor’s proposed rules are still pending and have not yet been issued in final.
