CCA Statement on the final passage of the federal climate package

Today’s passage of the Inflation Reduction Act is truly a landmark moment for air quality, public health and the planet’s climate. Though by no means perfect, the Inflation Reduction Act includes largest federal climate investment ever. The law’s $369 billion in climate investments will reduce climate-harming pollutants by 40% of 2005 levels by 2030. These investments will also result in cleaner, healthier air while also reducing energy costs and supporting a healthy economy. Importantly, many of these investments will be targeted towards low-income communities, which have long suffered from under investment and the effects of air pollution.
