Final decisions on these petitions are based on the petitioner’s statements, comments and information submitted by interested persons, and a field investigation of the conditions at the mine. MSHA, as designee of the Secretary, has granted or partially granted the requests for modification listed below.

DEPARTMENT OF LABOR

Employment Standards Administration


Wage and Hour Division; Minimum Wages for Federal and Federally 
Assisted Construction; General Wage Determination Decisions

    General wage determination decisions of the Secretary of Labor are 
issued in accordance with applicable law and are based on the 
information obtained by the Department of Labor from its study of local 
wage conditions and data made available from other sources. They 
specify the basic hourly wage rates and fringe benefits which are 
determined to be prevailing for the described classes of laborers and 
mechanics employed on construction projects of a similar character and 
in the localities specified therein.
    The determinations in these decisions of prevailing rates and 
fringe benefits have been made in accordance with 29 CFR part 1, by 
authority of the Secretary of Labor pursuant to the provisions of the 
Davis-Bacon Act of March 3, 1931, as amended (46 Stat. 1494, as 
amended, 40 U.S.C. 276a) and of other Federal statutes referred to in 
29 CFR part 1, Appendix, as well as such additional statutes as may 
from time to time be enacted containing provisions for the payment of 
wages determined to be prevailing by the Secretary of Labor in 
accordance with the Davis-Bacon Act. The prevailing rates and fringe 
benefits determined in these decisions shall, in accordance with the 
provisions of the foregoing statutes, constitute the minimum wage 
payable on Federal and federally assisted construction projects to 
laborers and mechanics of the specified classes engaged on contract 
work of the character and in the localities described therein.
    Good cause is hereby found for not utilizing notice and public 
comment procedure thereon prior to the issuance of these determinations 
as prescribed in 5 U.S.C. 553 and not providing for delay in the 
effective date as prescribed in that section, because the necessity to 
issue current construction industry wage determinations frequently and 
in large volume causes procedures to be impractical and contrary to the 
public interest.
    General wage determination decisions, and modifications and 
supersedeas decisions thereto, contain no expiration dates and are 
effective from the date of notice in the ``Federal Register'', or on 
the date written notice is received by the agency, whichever is 
earlier. These decisions are to be used in accordance with the 
provisions of 29 CFR parts 1 and 5. Accordingly, the applicable 
decision, together with any modifications issued, must be made a part 
of every contract for performance of the described work within the 
geographic area indicated as required by an applicable Federal 
prevailing wage law and 29 CFR part 5. The wage rates and fringe 
benefits, notice of which is published herein, and which are contained 
in the Government Printing Office (GPO) document entitled ``General 
Wage Determinations Issued Under The Davis-Bacon And Related Acts,'' 
shall be the minimum paid by contractors and subcontractors to laborers 
and mechanics.
    Any person, organization, or governmental agency having an interest 
in the rates determined as prevailing is encouraged to submit wage rate 
and fringe benefit information for consideration by the Department.
