The Missouri General Assembly has sent Governor Jay Nixon, a Democrat, legislation that would provide a targeted roll back of the state's prevailing wage.

The Missouri House has passed legislation that would allow some school districts to exempt themselves from the prevailing wage requirement for construction and maintenance projects. 

The sponsor, Republican Casey Guernsey of Harrison County, says it will allow rural schools in particular to be able to afford much-needed expansions and upgrades.
