US Secretary of Ag Tom Vilsack Pleased that the Inflation Reduction Act Will Soon Be the Law of the Land

Sat, 13 Aug 2022 16:49:58 CDT

US Secretary of Ag Tom Vilsack Pleased that the Inflation Reduction Act Will Soon Be the Law of the Land After the passage in the US House of the Inflation Reduction Act- US Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack offered the following statement:


“I want to thank Speaker Pelosi for leading the House in quick passage of the historic Inflation Reduction Act, putting rural America over special interests, and delivering a historic bill to President Biden’s desk.


“The Inflation Reduction Act will provide significant support for farmers, ranchers, and forest landowners as they care for our precious land, adapt and mitigate to climate change and ensure America remains a food secure nation. With historic investments in a clean energy economy, the Inflation Reduction Act will create good-paying jobs and more economic opportunity in rural communities across the country. Rural Americans will see lower utility bills and appreciate the fiscally responsible way the law lowers deficits. The Inflation Reduction Act will also lower costs for seniors, who make up a higher percentage of rural populations than more urban areas, by capping their annual out of pocket costs at the pharmacy and giving Medicare the power to negotiate drug prices.


“The Inflation Reduction Act builds on the Biden-Harris Administration’s historic investments in rural America and furthers the commitment to rural communities demonstrated in the American Rescue Plan and Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The law is a once-in-a-generation opportunity to build critical infrastructure, to protect communities from wildfire and extreme heat and to drive climate-smart agriculture and renewable energy initiatives nationwide.


“President Biden knows that when rural communities succeed, America succeeds. I look forward to the President signing the Inflation Reduction Act, implementing its historic provisions at USDA, and investing a better future for rural America and all of America.”
