BILL NUMBER:S2379 TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the labor law, in relation to eliminating the delivery of fossil fuel from those building services for which municipalities are required to pay prevailing wage PURPOSE: This bill would eliminate the delivery of fossil fuel from those building services for which municipalities are required to pay prevailing wage. SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS: Amends section 230(1) of the labor law to remove the transportation and delivery of fossil fuel from the definition of "building service employee." JUSTIFICATION: With the ever increasing cost of fossil fuels placing a greater burden on local taxpayers, the state should be doing everything we can to ensure that our villages, towns and counties are able to purchase gasoline, diesel fuel and heating oil at the most reasonable cost available.
