Davis-Bacon update

Since we'll be soon talking about rebuilding efforts again, I thought I'd post an update on the attempt by President Bush to allow federally-funded contractors to pay wages beneath the prevailing rate. The number of Democrats who have not signed on as sponsors of HR3763, the anti-Gulf Coast Wage Cut Act (as Josh Marshall calls it), is down to thirteen. Only one of the holdouts is a Texan. Care to guess who? If you said Henry Cuellar, you're right. Richard Raymond, Ciro Rodriguez, this is your cue. Get those mailers ready for the primary. Thanks to The Jeffersonian for the link.
