Rep. Castor Statement on Senate Passage of Inflation Reduction Act
Washington, August 7, 2022
“Senate Democrats just delivered a historic investment that will lower costs, create good-paying jobs, and empower us to address the climate emergency. We are on the cusp of taking historic action to lower drug costs for Floridians, taking on Big Pharma’s egregious price gouging and instituting an out-of-pocket cap for seniors. We’re also delivering the largest climate and clean energy investment in history, paving the way for reduced pollution, cleaner air, and cost-saving electric vehicles and technologies.
“It is a “people over politics” moment to celebrate lower costs for working families and critical climate action. I am proud of my Senate colleagues who worked through the weekend to make this victory possible. And I’m confident the House will act swiftly to pass the Inflation Reduction Act so we can send it to President Biden’s desk.”
