Davis-Bacon Prevailing Wages, continued

Nite Swimming blog, run by Cali Dem, reports based on Congressional records that the Democrats are now sponsoring a resolution, HR 3763, to restore the Davis-Bacon prevailing wages in the Katrina affected areas, after W's executive order suspended them for the time being.

The sponsor of this legislation is, again, none other than Congressman George Miller of Martinez, California (San Francisco Bay Area). This Congressman Miller, who has covered my former hometown of Concord for a long time, is surely far better than the Congressman Miller - Republican Gary Miller - whose district I currently live in.

Although it's likely that wayward Democrats and the Republican majority will sink this resolution, I hope that a strong point is made here.
