STAND. COM. REP. NO. 1137
RE: S.B. No. 1475
Honorable Ronald D. Kouchi
President of the Senate
Thirtieth State Legislature
Regular Session of 2019
State of Hawaii
Your Committee on Ways and Means, to which was referred S.B. No. 1475, S.D. 1, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO WAGES,"
begs leave to report as follows:
The purpose and intent of this measure is to require that the foreperson classification be recognized in Hawaii's version of the Davis-Bacon Act and requirements in a collective bargaining agreement be followed when a basic hourly rate is established by the agreement.
Your Committee received no written comments on this measure.
Your Committee finds that forepersons deserve wage protection and a level playing field when working on a public works project.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Ways and Means that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 1475, S.D. 1, and recommends that it pass Third Reading.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Ways and Means,
DONOVAN M. DELA CRUZ, Chair
