Davis-Bacon Act Reinstated

October 31, 2005

On October 26, the White House announced that, effective November 8, 2005, it would reinstate the Davis-Bacon Act provisions requiring that construction workers be paid the local prevailing wage, suspended on September 8 in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. When reinstated on November 8, the provisions of the Davis-Bacon Act will not be applied retroactively to wages paid during the suspension.
