Representative Kathy Swan of Cape Girardeau is the sponsor of HB 1041 – a bill relating to prevailing wages, filed Thursday in the Missouri House. Prevailing wages affect businesses across the state in limiting which employers can afford to place bids on jobs, as they cannot all afford to pay the wages required in larger municipalities. Swan tells KZIM-KSIM her bill can help small businesses. House Bill 1041 is one of several bills Swan is proposing this session, with most of her work focused on education and healthcare.
