MBI has retained the government affairs firm of Capitol Advisors to assist and advise us on pending prevailing wage legislation this session.

This seems to be the “camel’s nose under the tent” for increasing PW requirements for offsite work. Join MBI lobbyist Susan Stuart of Capitol Advisors as she discusses this bill and other relevant legislation. Additionally, MBI Director Tom Hardiman will provide an update on relevant code change proposals currently being considered for the 2018 IBC and IEBC. Full Details >>
