In late August, President Biden signed the “Inflation Reduction Act of 2022” (IRA) into law. The IRA was previously passed by the U.S. Senate by a slim margin and later approved by the U.S. House of Representatives. In both Houses of Congress, the IRA Bill passed along party lines with support from Democratic members of Congress and opposition from Republican members of Congress. The opposition was largely due to the rather large cost of the legislation and questions as to whether the legislation could accomplish all the goals and objectives that were set forth in promoting the Bill.
