WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush issued an executive order Thursday

allowing federal contractors rebuilding in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina to

pay below the prevailing wage.

In a notice to Congress, Bush said the hurricane had caused "a national emergency" that

permits him to take such action under the 1931 Davis-Bacon Act in ravaged areas of Alabama ,

Florida , Louisiana and Mississippi .

Bush's action came as the federal government moved to provide billions of dollars in aid, and

drew rebukes from two of organized labor's biggest friends in Congress, Rep. George Miller

of California and Sen. Edward Kennedy of Massachusetts , both Democrats.

"The administration is using the devastation of Hurricane Katrina to cut the wages of people

desperately trying to rebuild their lives and their communities," Miller said.

"President Bush should immediately realize the colossal mistake he has made in signing this

order and rescind it and ensure that America puts its people back to work in the wake of Katrina

at wages that will get them and their families back on their feet," Miller said.

"I regret the president's decision," said Kennedy.

"One of the things the American people are very concerned about is shabby work and that certainly

is true about the families whose houses are going to be rebuilt and buildings that are going to be

restored," Kennedy said.

The Davis-Bacon law requires federal contractors to pay workers at least the prevailing wages in the

area where the work is conducted. It applies to federally funded construction projects such as highways

and bridges.

Bush's executive order suspends the requirements of the Davis-Bacon law for designated areas hit by

the storm.
