Seeking to protect local labor, Senator Fowler sponsored legislation that will help guarantee well-paying jobs stay local.
Senate Bill 1360 requires any pending application for gaming licensure being considered before the Illinois Gaming Board to include a signed project labor agreement (PLA).
“Labor organizations are the backbone of our middle class, and I sponsored this legislation to ensure that we honor our commitment to the hardworking men and women who make up our local labor unions,” said Sen. Fowler. “I’m proud to be a vocal advocate for Illinois workers, and am excited that the Governor signed legislation to guarantee future well-paying jobs stay in Southern Illinois.”
SB 1360 was signed into law June 10.
