AG Nessel joined a coalition of 11 other states to urge Congress to uphold funding within the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA), to protect billions of dollars towards climate solutions. The letter specifically opposes cuts to the IRA that would help small businesses and farm owners transition to renewable energy, encourage more clean energy to reduce pollution in disadvantaged communities, and help families create healthier homes by installing electric appliances.

The IRA is essential to provide funding for families and small businesses access to clean energy. It is a crucial puzzle piece in the United States’ efforts to address climate change and help in the transition to clean energy across the country. We applaud AG Nessel for advocating to uphold these funds toward projects that will help reduce pollution, provide farmers and small businesses a funding source for clean energy projects, and encourage better health outcomes for families who make the switch to electric appliances.
