CINCINNATI - A state may make an across-the-board determination not to require that its contractors enter into project labor agreements (PLAs) because the state is acting as a market participant rather than as a regulator, the Sixth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals ruled Sept. 6 (Michigan Building and Construction Trades Council, et al. v. Richard Snyder, Nos. 12-1246/2548, 6th Cir.; 2013 U.S. App. LEXIS 18580).
