Public works apprenticeship utilization bill on the move

HB 1849 makes several changes to apprenticeship utilization requirements on public works projects. The bill would apply apprenticeship utilization hours to all contractors and subcontractors and would make awarding agencies responsible for monitoring contractor and subcontractor compliance with the hour’s requirement. The bill also stipulates that failure to comply with the requirements would serve as one of the violations that would count towards debarring a contractor from bidding on the public works.

HB 1849 passed out of the House of Representatives 51-47 and moves to the Senate for consideration.
