Professor Lichtenstein was also featured in Santa Barbara’s own Noozhawk, in an article about the city council’s recent vote to authorize the use of project labor agreements (PLA) on city public works projects having the value of more than $5 million. The article, which quotes Professor Lichtenstein speaking at a city council meeting, shows how his ideas get put into legislative practice. You can find the piece here.
