Inflation Reduction Act & Davis Bacon | Legal Changes with Shocking Consequences

The newly passed Inflation Reduction Act includes substantial tax breaks for the owners of renewable energy projects if they are constructed and operated as required by the IRA.

From the contractor and subcontractors’ points of view, this means complying with a set of prevailing wage requirements similar - but not identical to - Davis Bacon requirements. It also means either complying with or being able to prove good faith efforts to comply with substantial apprenticeship requirements. In addition, Davis Bacon rulemaking is under way that will substantially alter the landscape of federal contracting.

Any contractor bidding on or working on an IRA eligible project needs to both be aware of these requirements and have a compliance plan in place before they start work. 

There will be a live webinar including both a substantive presentation and a Q & A session hosted by 34-year labor attorney Andy Martone, who will go over both sets of requirements of the IRA and the proposed changes to Davis Bacon in detail and provide an outline for an IRA compliance plan.

This CLE is approved for credit through April 16, 2025.
