Aug 21, 2023 12:34 am

Mid-Hudson News reports that on Aug. 16 Gov. Kathy Hochul signed the Roadway Quality Assurance Act. The measure strengthens prevailing wage requirements for construction workers in the state and mandates that utility company contractors and subcontractors pay the prevailing wage to employees on projects where a permit to use, excavate, or open a street is required to be issued. Hochul said, “Our construction workers keep New Yorkers moving but are often underpaid for their hard and impactful work.... I am proud to sign this legislation that will provide construction workers with fair wages and allow them to support themselves, their families, and our local economy.” The new law applies to all contracts for construction executed and permits issued on or after August 29, 2023.
