Washington, D.C. – In response to the Treasury Department and IRS release of key details to help consumers access new electric vehicle tax credits from the Inflation Reduction Act, the League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Vice President of Government Affairs Sara Chieffo:

“This is history in the making! We are thrilled to see the Biden-Harris administration’s quick work to implement the Inflation Reduction Act and kick off the new year by speeding the transition to electric vehicles and ensuring these cars and trucks are more accessible for all. Importantly, today’s announcement will help more school districts purchase electric school buses, the cleanest and healthiest option for kids. More electric vehicles on the streets will mean cleaner air for our children and families and major progress toward our climate goals. We look forward to continued work with the Biden-Harris administration to ensure the landmark climate law is implemented boldly, swiftly, and equitably.”
