Iowa Governor Signs Bill to Protect Taxpayers, Boost Jobs for Iowa’s Construction Industry

WASHINGTON, D.C., April 13—Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) today applauded Gov.

The bill, SF 438, will ensure that the government cannot mandate controversial project labor agreements (PLAs) on state, state-assisted and local construction projects, guaranteeing that the 85 percent of Iowa’s private construction workforce that has chosen not to join a labor union can work on projects funded by their own tax dollars.
