STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
The purpose of this bill is to increase opportunities for
apprenticeships in construction for Idaho residents and increase
the number of skilled laborers. It requires the director of the
Idaho department of administration to specify that 15% of the
total labor hours on a public works contract of $2 million or
more be set aside for apprenticeships. The director may waive or
modify this requirement when deemed appropriate.
There will be very minimal administrative costs to the
department of administration.
