Governor Newsom Signs Priority Industry Bills

In the final hours of the 2020 legislative session, Governor Newsom signed all four of the priority bills sponsored by the industry this year. The measures will expand the scope of prevailing wage, stimulate electric vehicle infrastructure work – prioritizing the utilization of union electrical contractors and provide notice in all public agency bidding and contract documents when a skilled and trained workforce will be required. All of these measures will help increase union electrical contractor market share, and will benefit our industry for years to come. Click here for a brief summary of each measure.
