ABC San Diego Praises Federal Spending Amendment
Legislation prohibits Project Labor Agreements on FY2012 federal military construction contracts


(Poway, CA) - Discriminatory and costly project labor agreements (PLAs) would be prohibited on all federally funded military construction projects in the FY2012 budget under legislation passed this week by the U.S. House Appropriations Committee.

The Associated Builders and Contractors of San Diego joined its national organization and other supporters in thanking the Committee for its vote. “San Diego County’s voters have passed local fair and open competition measures in the last three elections,” said Scott Crosby, President & CEO of ABC San Diego. “This new federal legislation supports their direction that projects funded by the taxpayers are awarded to the most competitive bidder, without regard to union affiliation.”

“This amendment applies to all military projects. With such a large military presence in San Diego, this would affect billions of dollars in projects about go out to bid at Camp Pendleton and other military facilities in the county,” noted Crosby.

Strongly supported by ABC and the merit shop contracting community, the amendment passed Tuesday offered by Rep. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) prohibits federal agencies from mandating anti-competitive and costly project labor agreements (PLAs) and discriminatory PLA preferences on all construction projects funded in the legislation. The bill now moves to the full House of Representatives.
