On January 15, 2019, Governor Pritzker signed Public Act 100-1177 amending the Prevailing Wage Act, 820 ILCS 130/1 et. seq. The bill took effect on June 1, 2019. As a result, public bodies will no longer be required to determine the prevailing wage rate. Instead, the applicable wage rates for each locality will be set by the prevailing wage schedule that is published on the Illinois Department of Labor’s (IDOL) website. Public bodies will no longer be required to approve an annual prevailing wage ordinance or resolution each June, or publish the annual notice of approval in the newspaper or on its website.
