On Senate Floor, Carper Urges Support for Historic Inflation Reduction Act

WASHINGTON, D.C. — U.S. Senator Tom Carper (D-Del.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, today spoke on the Senate floor in support of the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, historic legislation to address climate change, invest in clean energy, lower health care costs for Americans, and help create good-paying jobs.

“The truth is that far too many Americans are struggling, said Carper. “They are hurting from the high cost of health care. They are hurting from rising living expenses and energy bills. And, they are hurting from extreme weather that’s costing us in terms of dollars and lives.”

Carper continued: “At the end of the day, the programs in this bill will help create jobs, lower costs for many American families, and fight inflation—all while addressing the imminent threat of climate change and doing so in a way that leaves no community behind. It’s proof that we can do well and do good at the same time.”
