RMI Statement on Debt Agreement in Congress


Congress has passed a deal to lift the debt ceiling while preserving the essential programs in the Inflation Reduction Act.

In Response, RMI Director of Government Affairs John Coequyt Released the Following Statement:  

“This is a budget and debt deal which fully protects the transformational climate policies in the Inflation Reduction Act, demonstrating the enduring appeal of incentives and policies to boost clean energy manufacturing across the country, tackling inflation, and creating jobs.

“To fully realize the economic opportunity at hand, it’s necessary for the federal government to responsibly find ways of increasing the speed and scale of building out the electric transmission system nationwide. All the dominoes are lined up for rapidly accelerating the clean energy transformation of our economy, and unlocking the transmission challenge is absolutely key.”
