The Biden-Harris Administration’s Inflation Reduction Act contained historic federal investments towards emissions reduction. More than $3 billion has been allocated to Washington state to repair bridges and roads, and to electrify transportation. Vice President Kamala Harris cast the tiebreaking vote to pass the law, and she’ll visit Seattle on Tuesday to tout its impact.
