Tri-Caucus Chairs Applaud Senate Passage of Historic Inflation Reduction Act

Aug 9, 2022

Washington, D.C. – Today, the Chairs of the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus (CAPAC), Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) and Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) applauded the recent Senate passage of the Inflation Reduction Act ahead of the House vote later this week. CAPAC Chair Rep. Judy Chu, CBC Chair Rep. Joyce Beatty and CHC Chair Rep. Raul Ruiz released the following statement:

“The Inflation Reduction Act is a historic piece of legislation that will lower the cost of prescription drugs and health insurance, reduce everyday energy costs, invest in working families, create millions of well-paid union jobs, and will take big action to address the climate crisis. It has an equity lens to ensure that no community is left behind and that those impacted most by climate change and rising health care costs will significantly benefit. The Senate’s passage of this bill is a major step forward that will benefit rural communities and communities of color across the nation. As leaders of the Tri-Caucus, we look forward to passing this bill in the House this week and sending it to President Biden’s desk as soon as possible to bring relief to the American people and boost our economy.”
