Apparently having resolved the financial crises facing the state, Oregon Democratics in the Senate passed a new "prevailing wage" bill (all for the sake of "clarity").
State law already requires prevailing wages be paid on publicly funded projects on Oregon University System property, but the bill would ensure prevailing wages for projects that might be privately funded.
Meanwhile, tuition rates increase - especially for out-of-state students - while the bozos hand illegal aliens in-state tuition. On the one hand, Oregon Democratics "think" that everybody should go to college - while on the other, they deliberately and artificially inflate construction costs on campuses (campii?) across the state. Really, it's fortunate for Democratics that heartbeat and respiration are involuntary.
