for more than 60 years the American taxpayers have been burdened by
billions in bloated constiuction costs as a result of the Davis-Bacon Act, and
the Davis-Bacon Act costs small businesses working on Davis-Bacon
projects almost S200 million a year in unnecessary and excessive
the Davis-Bacon Act has blacklisted thousands of non-union companies by
preventing them from bidding on most govemmem construction projects
thereby guaranteeing that 9 out of 10 construction workers will be kept off
the job, and
the only ones who benefit from the continued existence of the Davis-Bacon
Act are union officials who reap a huge annual fmancial wiixlfall as
millions of taxpayer dollars get funncled into their political war chests and
as a constituent of yours, I urge you, in the name of a prosperous and vital
ecoiK>my. to co-sponsor and support repeal of the Davis-Bacon Act.
