The 411:

Bidenomics is proving its worth as benefits from the president’s landmark climate law continue to show up in communities across the country. Hundreds of thousands of jobs in climate and clean energy are being created from Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, and Arizona, to Michigan, Nevada, Tennessee, and beyond. The IRA’s investments and incentives are fueling a virtuous manufacturing supercycle as companies invest in long-term manufacturing and supply chains for the energy technologies of the future right here in the United States. Bidenomics is proving its skeptics wrong by delivering to all communities—even those of its greatest Republican detractors. The IRA’s historic investments have revitalized what’s possible for climate action at the national, state, and local levels while continuing to keep equity and environmental justice efforts at the forefront.
