Ranking Member Larsen’s Statement on the Anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act

Everett, WA—Ranking Member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure Rick Larsen (D-WA) released the following statement on the one-year anniversary of the Inflation Reduction Act. 

“One year later, the Inflation Reduction Act is doing exactly what it set out to do: creating jobs, lowering costs for individuals and families, advancing green infrastructure investments, and accelerating the clean energy economy of the future,” Ranking Member Larsen said. “The IRA is also helping lay the groundwork for a greener aviation sector by investing millions in sustainable aviation fuel infrastructure projects and low emission aviation technology. The House-passed Federal Aviation Administration reauthorization builds on the IRA’s progress with major investments to reduce emissions, accelerate the transition to alternative fuels, grow and diversify our workforce, and, for the first time, support airport resiliency projects. Through legislation like this, House Democrats continue to improve the quality of life for all Americans by building the economy from the middle out and the bottom up.”
