Provides that contracts for public works projects may not be awarded to a contractor that does not: (1) employ residents of Indiana as at least 80% of the employees working on the contract; and (2) enter into subcontracts only with subcontractors that employ residents of Indiana as at least 80% of the employees working on the contract. Provides that if a contract is being paid for with federal funds and the requirement that 80% of the employees must be residents of Indiana causes the loss of the federal funds as determined by the federal agency providing the funds, the use of 80% Indiana residents is a goal and not a requirement. Applies this restriction to contracts entered into by the public works division of the department of administration, any state agency or commission entering into a public works contract, the commission governing the ports of Indiana, and the department of transportation. Requires the commissioner of the department of administration to prepare an annual report for the public and the legislative council stating, for the contractors awarded public works contracts by the state and the subcontractors with which these contractors entered into subcontracts, the percentage of the contractors' and subcontractors' employees working on the public works contracts who are residents of Indiana.
