WASHINGTON, D.C.— Today, the United States House of Representatives passed the Inflation Reduction Act, paving the way for President Joe Biden to sign the bill into law in the coming days.
In response, Joe Britton, Executive Director of the Zero Emission Transportation Association, released the following statement:
“With the passage of the Inflation Reduction Act today, we are one step closer to creating millions of good paying American jobs, lowering consumer energy and transportation costs, and protecting tens of millions of Americans against dangerous emissions and unhealthy air caused by tailpipe pollution. On behalf of ZETA, I’d like to sincerely thank the White House and Congressional leadership for their tireless efforts to enact this law, as well as the many electric vehicle champions in and out of government who have contributed considerably through the years to securing policy support for the zero emission vehicle sector.
We’ll continue working with our federal partners to ensure smart and expedient implementation of this law, and do our part to ensure Americans know about and take advantage of the transportation electrification it makes possible.”
The Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA) is a federal coalition focused on advocating for 100% EV sales by 2030. ZETA is committed to enacting policies that drive EV adoption, create hundreds of thousands of jobs, secure American global EV manufacturing leadership, drastically improve public health, and significantly reduce carbon pollution.
