DOL has announced plans to move ahead with a proposed rule to raise prevailing wage rates for the H-1B, H-1B1, E-3, and PERM programs. A final prevailing wage rule had been scheduled to take effect  last November  but a federal court vacated the Trump-era regulation in 2021. Now, DOL is promulgating a new prevailing wage regulation. Publication of the new proposal had been scheduled for October 2022 but is now targeted for September 2023.
