CHEYENNE – The Department of Workforce Services is repealing Chapter 1 of the Apprenticeship Utilization Program rules and now seeks public comment on the proposed repeal of the rules.

The proposed repeal of Chapter 1 is due to the repeal of its authorizing statute through Senate Enrolled Act No. 0004, which passed in the most recent General Session. The Public works apprenticeship programs-repeal bill eliminated the bid preference program for contractors. Therefore, this chapter of rules that outlines the parameters around the preference program is proposed to be repealed. The stricken copy may be found here.

More information about the repeal may be found on the Statement of Reasons and the public may comment using the Public Comment on Chapter 1: Apprenticeship Utilization Program form until July 21, 2023.
