Org. position: {{{Vote position 1}}}

Description:

"Vote on a Rogers amendment that would prevent projects funded in this bill from having to comply with Davis-Bacon requirements. The pro-growth vote is "yea" because Davis-Bacon requires wages to be paid at a "prevailing" union rate, which is almost always higher than the market rate. This forces taxpayers to pay more than is necessary. Failed 145-277."
