CALIFORNIA LEGISLATURE— 2019–2020 REGULAR SESSION

Assembly Bill
No. 2231


Introduced by Assembly Member Kalra

February 13, 2020


An act to amend Section 1724 of the Labor Code, relating to prevailing wage.


LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 2231, as introduced, Kalra. Prevailing wage: locality.
Existing law requires that workers employed on public works, as defined, costing over $1,000 be paid not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages, and not less than the general prevailing rate of per diem wages for holiday and overtime work, for work of a similar character in the locality in which the public work is performed. Existing law defines “locality in which public work is performed” as the county in which the public work is done, in cases in which the state awards the contract, and as the limits of the political subdivision on whose behalf the contract is awarded, in other cases.
This bill would eliminate this distinction in the definition of “locality in which public work is performed” and instead define the term in all cases as meaning the county in which the public work is done.
Vote: MAJORITY   Appropriation: NO   Fiscal Committee: NO   Local Program: NO  

The people of the State of California do enact as follows:


SECTION 1.
