Release: NSAC Congratulates Senate on Inflation Reduction Act of 2022 Passage, Urges Swift House Action 

Funding Prioritizes Climate Solutions for Agriculture and Includes Key Coalition Priorities

Washington, DC, August 7, 2022 – Today the full Senate passed the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022, which would provide approximately $40 billion for climate change mitigation and resilience efforts over the next ten years through key agriculture provisions. The National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition (NSAC) encourages the House to convene and pass the bill immediately with agricultural spending intact to ensure farmers and ranchers are able to act with urgency to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build climate resilience. NSAC issued the following comment on Senate passage, attributable to Mike Lavender, NSAC Interim Policy Director. 

“The Senate’s passage of the Inflation Reduction Act marks an unprecedented step toward addressing climate change and building a climate-resilient food and farm system. For farmers, ranchers, and communities, this is cause for celebration. In the months ahead, NSAC looks forward to ensuring that these historic investments live up to their full potential through successful implementation. We encourage the House to move swiftly in order to send the bill to the President’s desk.”
