New Law In New Jersey Requiring Prevailing Wage Or Apprenticeship

I am gathering information on the new law that passed on January 1, 2019. The law (formerly Assembly Bill 3666). Here's the key sentence:

This bill requires every contract subject to State prevailing wage requirements to require each worker employed under the contract to be enrolled in, or have completed, a registered apprenticeship, unless the contractor or subcontractor certifies that the worker is paid not less than the journeyworker wage rate.

I'm looking into a couple of different things:

1. The NJ Prevailing Wage Act which governs rates paid to skilled workers was passed in 1963. The purpose of this act is

to establish a prevailing wage level for workmen engaged in public works in order to safeguard their efficiency and general well-being and to protect them as well as their employers from the effects of serious and unfair competition resulting from wage levels detrimental to efficiency and well-being.

2. It looks like the new law just says to follow the Prevailing Wage Act and pay your workers what you're supposed to or prove that they are apprentices in a US Department of Labor-approved apprenticeship program and therefore should be paid at a lower rate.

3. President Trump signed an Executive Order on June 15, 2017, directed the Government to actively expand apprenticeships throughout the country. I am wondering what part the Executive Order might have played in the law being passed in NJ. Part of the charge of the Order was to develop a Task Force on Apprenticeship Expansion:

I am wondering if anyone has any information on the law, or particular first-hand experience with public works jobs and prevailing wage rate in NJ. Please either comment here or email me directly at dan@ipvm.com.
