Missouri House passes prevailing wage repeal

The Missouri House has passed a bill that would repeal the state's "prevailing wage" law for public construction projects.

I was wondering if something like this would come along. On one-hand, as one involved in construction, I surely enjoy going out on prevailing jobs when we can get them, on the otherhand, this should significantly reduce municipal outlays on public improvement projects which is a HUGE hindrance to minor towns (500 - 25k pop.). On the otherhand, likely union enrollment will go down and the wages to those laborer's families likewise drop.
