Senate Bill 854, signed into law June 20, 2014, became effectively immediately.  It established a new public works contractor registration program which will collect fees to fund compliance monitoring and enforcement, determine prevailing wage and public works coverage, and hear enforcement appeals. As of July 1, 2017 Senate Bill 96 was signed, amending the DIR prevailing wage monitoring program for public works projects. New reporting requirements are in place (See below):

Annual registration fees for public works contractors have increased from $300 to $400, and contractor on small projects are expempt from public works registration and electronic certified payroll requirements.

Public works contractors who pay $300 to renew their annual registration on or before June 30, 2017, are not required to pay the increased amount.
