Vos asks Senate to give position on prevailing wage
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Assembly Speaker Robin Vos says a proposal scaling back the use of prevailing wage in Wisconsin has the votes to pass the Assembly and he's waiting for the Senate to say what it has the votes to do.
Vos on Monday joined with other Republican Assembly members to unveil a measure to cut the use of the prevailing wage by 60 percent. The law sets minimum salaries for construction workers in many public projects.
Vos says, "The Assembly is not going to just sit around waiting for the Senate to get its act together."
He says at least 50 Assembly Republicans will vote for the plan, but he doesn't think the Senate has 17 votes to pass anything.
Senate Republican Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald had no immediate comment.
