Things got exciting today

Today during a debate on a bill that has to do with allowing public universities the ability to issue bonds for revenue generating projects on their own, the issue of prevailing wage became the focus.

The issue was brought up by my friend, Rep. Tim Moore of Elizabethtown. He brought up how we could save money on these university projects by repealing the prevailing wage law. Well, I got a good glimpse of the fervent support the issue has in the House. The supporters of prevailing wage could not jump up fast enough to defend this policy.

I applaud my friend for starting the conversation. My guess is that it is not over.
