Protect the climate change provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act
Tell Congress we want affordable, abundant clean energy 🔆
Keep this historic climate bill intact
The Inflation Reduction Act has enjoyed bipartisan support since its passage, benefiting both red and blue states alike with clean energy projects popping up across the country. It simply makes no sense to repeal these important climate provisions.
The IRA helps the climate, people and businesses.
The Inflation Reduction Act puts us on track to reduce our carbon pollution 40% by 2030. — within striking distance of the climate goals that science demands.
It also lowers energy costs, makes it affordable for Americans to electrify their homes and transportation, and provides direct support to American communities to develop clean energy so that their residents can live free of air pollution.
It’s not just people who like the IRA. Since its passage in August 2022, America’s businesses have jumped at the new opportunity to build clean energy. Already, 191 new clean energy projects in battery manufacturing and electric car manufacturing have lead to over 142,000 jobs in 41 states.
America is moving forward to a clean energy economy. And the House shouldn’t stop us.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will my representative listen to me?
Yes! The idea that elected representatives don’t listen to their constituents is not true. In reality, congressional staffers take every call and voicemail and read every email their office receives and pass these onto their member of Congress in regular briefings. Congress works for you, and they want to know what their constituents care about. You may receive a generic email in response, but your message was still received loud and clear.
What climate provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act are at risk?
Almost all of the key energy provisions of the Inflation Reduction Act are gutted, including tax credits and/or rebates for building electrification, residential energy efficiency, electric vehicle, electric vehicle charging, renewable energy (ITC and PTC), biofuels, sustainable aviation fuel, carbon capture and sequestration, clean manufacturing, hydrogen and nuclear power. It also repeals the fee on leaked methane, a potent greenhouse gas, and cancels funding for updating building codes and training contractors to install electric HVAC systems. It would also eliminate the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund which provides loans for low emissions projects in low-income and disadvantaged communities.
How does the Inflation Reduction Act relate to the debt ceiling?
There is a limit to how much the US government can borrow called the debt ceiling, and Congress must authorize any increases to that limit. This becomes a must-pass bill which has lately meant a lot of political jockeying and posturing before an increase is approved. The bill in the House that would raise the debt ceiling includes provisions that repeal much of the climate provisions passed last year as part of the Inflation Reduction Act.
