Bill #SB82

This bill revises provisions related to the Apprentice Utilization Act. Currently, each contractor or subcontractor must ensure that a certain percentage of hours worked within each apprenticed craft is performed by an apprentice(s) on each public work—three percent on horizontal projects and ten percent on vertical projects. Now, the required percentages must be achieved across all public works performed by each contractor throughout a calendar year, rather than on each public work. SB82 also creates various penalties for non-compliance and what constitutes a “good faith effort” that may otherwise incur a penalty for non-compliance.

Effective Date: January 1, 2024
