WASHINGTON, DC — Following President Biden’s State of the Union remarks, Lori Lodes, Executive Director of Climate Power, released the following statement: 

“Tonight, President Biden championed working families and Made in America clean energy. Under his leadership, the Inflation Reduction Act has put the United States on the cutting edge of manufacturing and innovation—creating a clean energy economic boom all across the country. Hundreds of thousands of good paying jobs are back in America, and over 100,000 clean energy jobs have been announced since the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act. Working people will be able to sustain and support their families, all while building resilient communities able to withstand the climate crisis.
