Weekly Poll (28)


In New York City, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo and legislative leaders recently passed Senate Bill S6599, which sets a net-zero emissions economy goal by 2050. Joining six other states with zero-emission electricity goals or requirements, do you think the U.S. will eventually have similar legislation pass in all 50 states?


Just last month Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak signed Assembly Bill 136 and Senate Bill 231 into law. Bill 136 lowers the prevailing wage threshold amount for public projects and restores the prevailing wage for workers on those projects to 100% and Bill 231 removes language that prohibits contractors and subcontractors from entering into agreements with labor organizations while working on public projects. Do you think this will successfully help those working in construction unions reach economic recovery?
