Proposed Amendment to Illinois Prevailing Wage Law

Language in proposed Illinois HB0063 and SB0043 would amend the Prevailing Wage Act to provide that “public works” includes economic development project areas as defined in the Economic Development Project Area Tax Increment Allocation Act of 1995. ¬†While the intent of this legislation was to require contractors and subcontractors to pay prevailing wages in all TIF Areas, the proposed legislation inadvertently defines economic development project areas in a limited way such that the prevailing wage requirements would only apply to closed military installations.
