LCV Statement on Inflation Reduction Act Labor Standard Announcement

Aug 29, 2023

Washington D.C. — In response to today’s guidance announced by the U.S. Treasury on required labor standards for eligibility for the full value of clean energy tax credits included in the Inflation Reduction Act, the League of Conservation Voters (LCV) released the following statement from Vice President of Federal Policy Matthew Davis:

“The Biden-Harris admin continues to push ahead with their commitment to create good, family-supporting, clean energy jobs as part of the affordable clean energy plan while extreme MAGA Republicans continue to try to roll back the progress that is creating these jobs across the country and in their own districts. Strong labor standards for the jobs we create to tackle the climate crisis and environmental injustice are critical for a transition to a just and equitable clean energy economy, and the Biden-Harris administration has remained focused on building out good-paying, unionized, clean energy jobs. We look forward to continuing to work with the administration to implement the affordable clean energy plan swiftly and equitably and fighting to defend it from extremist Republicans.”
