THE ALASKA CENTER STATEMENT ON HOUSE PASSAGE OF THE INFLATION REDUCTION ACT
ANCHORAGE, AK- "The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is cost-saving legislation that makes long-overdue investments in clean energy, improves energy security, and will build a more affordable, healthy, and just future. This legislation will bring critical cost savings to Alaskan families and begins to address decades of disproportionate impacts of climate on communities of color and low-income communities. The IRA is urgently necessary legislation, and we are ready to support implementation that works for and with climate frontline communities.
This legislation is not perfect, and we know there is much work to be done, but it is vital to acknowledge the most significant climate policy moment in history and we are excited to see President Biden sign it into law. We can now look forward to continued work alongside our partners across Alaska to further transformative climate, care, jobs and justice investments to tackle the overlapping crises facing our communities, as part of a just transition."- Jenny-Marie Stryker, Political Director, The Alaska Center
