The state of Louisiana proved it is serious about protecting taxpayer money on their construction projects when Gov. Bobby Jindal signed S.B. 76, a bill to prohibit government-mandated project labor agreements (PLAs).

The bill protects taxpayers by ensuring that they get the highest quality work at the best possible price. PLAs, on the other hand, force taxpayer to pay inflated union wages often driving up the price of construction by nearly 25%.

In addition, the law demonstrates Louisiana’s commitment to its Right to Work law by guaranteeing that workers are not forced to pay union dues as a condition of accepting a job in Louisiana. This preserves a worker’s choice on whether or not to join or pay dues to a labor union.

We say Amen to that!
