The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) is one of the most significant pieces of legislation in U.S. history to tackle the climate crisis, strengthen American energy security, lower healthcare costs, and, as the name denotes, combat inflation. Join VBSR and staff from the offices of Senator Leahy, Senator Sanders, and Congressman Welch as we explore what the IRA means for climate action, healthcare reform, and economic development in Vermont.
