BILL NUMBER:S1815 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to reciprocity of debarments imposed under the federal Davis-Bacon Act PURPOSE: The purpose of the bill is to close a loophole in the existing law relating to the debarment of contractors. Under the current law, contractors who have been debarred from federal job sites for having violated the wage-and-hour provisions of the Davis-Bacon Act .are under no such disability in New York, Federally debarred contractors are on an equal footing with honest, law-abiding contractors in that they are eligible and authorized to bid on and be awarded construction contracts sponsored by the State of New York and its political subdivisions. This bill would remedy that inequity by granting reciprocity to debarments imposed by the federal government on contractors who have violated the Davis-Bacon Act. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: The bill provides that any contractor who has been debarred from federal job sites for having disregarded obligations to employees under the Davis-Bacon Act shall also be debarred under the Labor Law from bidding on or being awarded similar contracts on public work job sites sponsored by the State or any of its political subdivisions.
