Reject state restrictions on local living wage laws- AB 750

  Whereas Republican members of the State Legislature wish to pass legislation that would override certain local "living and prevailing wage" ordinances.

  Whereas the City of Madison and Dane County have long had such ordinances, and Dane County continues to have one of the lowest unemployment rates in the state, and continues to add population in no small part due to its high quality of life.

  Whereas, AB750 is an intrusion into local governance, and is an arrogant attempt to use the state legislature to impose laws and lower work conditions against the will of the individuals in Dane County. 

  Therefore resolved, the DPDC ask that AB 750 be rejected, and local control maintained.
