Why does the Governor’s Representative typically abstain in the final vote?

Except in a tie, the Governor’s Representative will abstain in the final vote to adopt a wage scale.  The Indiana Department of Labor’s role on the committee is to provide information to the members concerning Common Construction Wage law, departmental interpretation and enforceability of the scale, and statutory requirements that must be met at the committee level.  It is the goal of the Indiana Department of Labor to remain neutral and allow the local representatives to make the final determination.
