MADISON - Two Republican legislators are trying to convince the state Senate's labor committee to approve a bill that would repeal Wisconsin's prevailing wage law.
The bill's chief sponsors, Sen. Leah Vukmir and Rep. Rob Hutton, told the committee during a hearing Tuesday that the law artificially increases costs for local governments. They say repealing the law would save taxpayer dollars.
Sen. Robert Wirch, a Pleasant Prairie Democrat, countered that the law helps ensure quality work.
