Taxpayer groups urge Labor Secretary Acosta to rescind Davis Bacon AAM 212

from NSPS

A broad coalition of taxpayer rights organizations urged the Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta to repeal All Agency Memorandum 212 (AAM-212), the March 2013 Obama Administration rule that extended the definition of "laborers and mechanics" to members of survey crews under the prevailing wage Davis-Bacon Act. NSPS has been pushing for repeal of AAM-212 since it was implemented. That change was done without a public comment period, as part of any legislative action and without consultation with the professional surveying community, those impacted by the regulation. NSPS will meet with Department of Labor officials next week to renew its request for repeal. The taxpayer group letter called AAM-212 a "costly and unnecessary change" that should be repealed under President Trump's program, "Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs," in which agencies must eliminate two regulations for each new rule it promulgates. more
