Marathon session over labor bill nears end

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- A marathon session in Des Moines over one issue will come to an end with the measure apparently one vote short.

The measure being voted on would require contractors to pay the prevailing wage to workers when they bid on public projects.  One vote shy of passage Friday, voting was extended through the weekend so lawmakers could continue to cast or change votes. 

The vote now stands at 50 - 48, and everyone who said they will vote, has voted.
