Lori Lodes, Executive Director of Climate Power, issued the following statement after President Biden signed the Inflation Reduction Act:

“It’s official: the most meaningful climate bill is now law thanks to President Biden and Democrats in Congress. Everyday costs will start to go down thanks to cleaner and cheaper energy. Good-paying clean energy jobs will be created in small towns and big cities across the country. Neighborhoods will become more resilient to a changing climate. Air will get cleaner and water safer to drink. This climate law is a BFD.

“The work that went into delivering this climate moment is a testament to never giving up. And we’re not done. President Biden signing this bill into law is just the first step toward achieving his vision for a clean energy economy and climate justice. The Inflation Reduction Act will be our baseline for future action and prove that acting on climate is critical to building a more just and equitable world. This is just the beginning. Let’s go!”
