WASHINGTON — The Inflation Reduction Act will reduce emissions, protect wildlife, and reduce harmful pollutants in the most significant ever legislation to combat the climate crisis. The National Wildlife Federation heralded the Senate’s passage of the legislation and urged the U.S. House of Representatives to swiftly follow suit.
“Every zip code across America will benefit from the good jobs, lower costs, and reduced pollution from the historic Inflation Reduction Act. This bill demonstrates how taking bold action on climate and building a cleaner economy will address the root causes of inflation and revitalize frontline and legacy energy communities alike,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Thank you to Senators Schumer, Senator Manchin, the entire Democratic caucus, and the millions of grassroots activists who have made this historic agreement possible. We look forward to working with the House, the Biden Administration, and climate activists across America to build upon this incredible achievement, because the climate, wildlife, and communities cannot wait.”
