Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar (R-CD4) voted against the first Hurricane Sandy relief package last week (as did Arizona's other three GOP Congressmen, although AZ's two GOP Senators voted for it), and in advance of next week's second relief package, he is "looking into" proposing language to suspend the federal Davis-Bacon Act requiring the government's contractors to pay their employees a prevailing wage.
The Hill reported this afternoon that Gosar "has proposed language suspending the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage requirements from all spending associated with the main bill and the Frelinghuysen amendment. However, the Representative's spokesperson, Apryl Marie Fogel, tells Arizona's Politics that Gosar is "looking into" such an amendment.
