NSPS held a virtual town hall on Tuesday, May 10th regarding the proposed changes to the Davis-Bacon Act. These changes would include surveying to be considered “labor” and thus subject to prevailing wage requirements. John Palatiello and JB Byrd, NSPS Legislative Representatives, were on hand to discuss the proposed changes and answer questions. The webinar was moderated by Timothy Burch, NSPS Executive Director.
NSPS and PLSO members are urged to file comments with the U.S. Department of Labor in opposition to classifying members of survey crews as “laborers and mechanics” under a 90-year old law known as the Davis-Bacon Act.
