13 Days ‘til Default: House Republicans Seek to Roll Back America’s Popular Clean Energy Boom
Washington, D.C. – When House Republicans passed the Default on America Act, which would repeal the landmark Inflation Reduction Act, they put America’s clean energy future in jeopardy. Among the places where this rollback would be felt most acutely is in Republican-controlled congressional districts that are set to benefit from $198 billion in clean energy investments that would create 77,261 jobs.
According to a recent poll from Navigator Research, voters across the country overwhelmingly support the Inflation Reduction Act, with 89% of Democrats, 62% of Independents, and 44% of Republicans in favor of the economic and climate benefits of the law.
Congressional Republicans should listen to their constituents and stop their attacks on popular job-creating investments that benefit their communities.
