STATEMENT: Clean Power PA Coalition Praises Signing of Inflation Reduction Act
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
HARRISBURG – (August 16, 2022) – The PA Clean Power Coalition issued the following statement upon U.S. House of Representatives’ passage of the Inflation Reduction Act, which now goes to President Biden for signature:
“The Inflation Reduction is a decisive step to blunt inflation, cut energy costs for families and businesses, tackle climate change, create thousands of good-paying jobs, and strengthen our country’s energy security, all in one historic bill.
“Pennsylvanians will benefit significantly, in both the short and long term, through a lower cost of living, a more resilient economy, and more home-grown clean energy options that will help protect us from the market manipulations of dictators and global oil and corporations. It also will slash by 40% the carbon pollution that damages our health and contributes to climate change.
“Cleaner air, lower costs at home and at the pump, more control over our energy, and more jobs. As the law is implemented, we must make sure that communities of color and low-income neighborhoods that are on the frontline of harmful pollution and climate-fueled extreme weather benefit directly and significantly.
“Thank you to all members of Congress who put the people first by voting for this bill. Now let’s move swiftly to make it a major win for all Americans.”
