Sen. Casey, Colleagues Urge Biden Administration to Ensure Smooth Implementation of Inflation Reduction Act’s SWACCA-Supported Prevailing Wage and Apprenticeship Requirements

Sen. Bob Casey (D-PA) announced that he led a group of his colleagues in a letter to Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen urging the Biden Administration to adopt rules that facilitate smooth implementation of the SWACCA-supported prevailing wage and apprenticeship requirements for increased tax credits under the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA).

In the letter, the Senators made several recommendations to ensure that clean energy workers are able to take full advantage of the new IRA tax credits, including treating project labor agreements as evidence of compliance with the IRA’s prevailing wage and apprenticeship requirements, establishing a front-end compliance monitoring system, and strengthening the good faith effort exception to the prevailing wage and apprenticeship requirements.
