Lee Reintroduces Davis-Bacon Repeal Act

Mar 15, 2024

WASHINGTON – Senator Mike Lee (R-UT) reintroduced the Davis-Bacon Repeal Act, legislation to eliminate the wage subsidy law that mandates federally funded construction projects worth more than $2,000 pay workers the "prevailing wage" rate applicable in the same locality for non-federal projects.

LEE, DURBIN INTRODUCE BIPARTISAN INSPECTOR GENERAL ACCESS ACT

Feb 27, 2024

WASHINGTON – Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced bipartisan legislation to expand the jurisdiction of the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Office of the Inspector General to include alleged DOJ attorney misconduct. Currently, the DOJ Inspector General (IG) has no authority to investigate professional misconduct by DOJ lawyers. DOJ is the only agency whose IG has such a jurisdictional carve-out. The Inspector General Access Act would simply strike this loophole, which leads to an unfair double standard where every DOJ employee—including FBI and DEA agents, U.S. Marshals, and federal prison guards—can be investigated by the DOJ IG except DOJ lawyers.
