Mendoza signs executive order to focus on prevailing wage Comptroller says emphasis on existing law needed as capital plan takes shape
SPRINGFIELD -- With a $45 billion, six-year capital infrastructure plan becoming law earlier this year, Illinois Comptroller Susana Mendoza signed an executive order this week aimed at refocusing enforcement of state prevailing wage laws for construction projects receiving state money. "When I took office in 2016, we made sure to let folks know that … our goal is to continue to enforce this executive act. What we're doing now is just reaffirming it and updating it and getting the word out as we embark on a $45 billion capital plan that this is state law, people need to be aware of it, they need to abide by it."
