Inspector General
Introducing The Davis-Bacon Repeal Act
11 February 1999    1999 Ron Paul 7:6
In addition to opening up new opportunities in the construction industry for smaller construction firms and their employees, repeal of Davis-Bacon would also return common sense and sound budgeting to federal contracting which is now rife with political favoritism and cronyism. An audit conducted earlier this year by the Labor Departmentís Office of the Inspector General found that inaccurate data were frequently used in Davis-Bacon wage determination. Although the Inspector Generalís report found no evidence of deliberate fraud, it did uncover material errors in five statesí wage determinations, causing wages or fringe benefits for certain crafts to be overstated by as much as $1.08 per hour!
