Democratic Candidate for Congress Molly Gray Statement on Senate Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act

Aug 07, 2022

Burlington, VT — Today, Democratic Candidate for Congress Molly Gray released the following statement following the Senate’s passage of the Inflation Reduction Act:

“Today, the Senate took action to address some of our nation’s most urgent challenges. The Inflation Reduction Act represents the most significant legislation to address climate change in American history; it will direct $369 billion into climate and energy programs, bring down the cost of Vermonters’ prescription drugs, make our tax system fairer, and strengthen the Affordable Care Act.

This is what Vermonters want to see from Washington. I strongly support today’s vote to pass this pragmatic, meaningful legislation which will provide security to Vermonters and Americans and make long-overdue federal investment in climate action. I commend the Senate Democratic caucus for their ability to reach a compromise and build a strong coalition to advance the Inflation Reduction Act and deliver real results for working families.

As Vermont’s Congresswoman, this is the approach I will take on the issues most important to Vermonters: affordable housing, workforce, child care, and more.”
