WASHINGTON, D.C.—Today, U.S. Senate Majority Leader Schumer and Senator Manchin reached an agreement on the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. This bill is a reconciliation package that will deliver investments in clean energy and transportation, reduce the deficit, and deliver healthcare cost savings to Americans.
In response, Joe Britton, Executive Director of the Zero Emission Transportation Association (ZETA), released the following statement:
“The Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 will make an unprecedented investment in our clean energy infrastructure and zero-emission transportation system. This bill’s passage will create millions of good-paying American jobs in the clean transportation industry, drastically cut consumer energy and transportation costs, and boost public health by decreasing carbon emissions and other pollution. America owes a great deal of gratitude to all those who worked to negotiate this bill.”
“The bill will ensure that America builds the core technologies of the 21st century here at home, and it will allow us to win the global clean transportation race. We encourage all U.S. Senators and Representatives to support this bill, and we hope that it is quickly passed into law.”
