Apprentice ID Fees

SECTION 8.   Section 11W of chapter 23 of the General Laws, as amended by section 12 of chapter 27 of the acts of 2009, is hereby further amended by inserting after the first paragraph the following 2 paragraphs:-
All apprentice identification cards, regardless of their expiration date, for occupations that would require the payment of the prevailing wage pursuant to sections 26 and 27 of chapter 149 on a public works project, shall expire on the anniversary date of their effective date, and each apprentice desiring to continue in an apprentice program thereafter may do so only after submitting a new application with the appropriate fee to the division for an updated annual apprentice identification card.
No apprentice identification card fee shall be charged to any veteran receiving GI Bill benefits through registered apprenticeship programs.

This section clarifies that annual fees are owed for all apprentice occupations subject to the prevailing wage. It also eliminates fees for veterans receiving GI Bill benefits.
