OPCMIA Hails Senate Passage of the Inflation Reduction Act

On behalf of the OPCMIA’s nearly 50,000 members, I want to express my gratitude to the 50 senators who passed the Inflation Reduction Act on Sunday.

This urgently-needed legislation will create good, middle-class union jobs, thanks to the strong labor protections included in over $300 billion in tax credits for clean energy infrastructure projects. Coming on top of the historic infrastructure bill passed last year, this has been the best stretch of good news for our members and all other members of the building trades in decades.

The Inflation Reduction Act also makes groundbreaking advances in fighting climate change, lowering prescription drug costs, expanding health care coverage, making the tax code more fair, and bringing the cost of living under control for working families.

That’s why we urge the House to swiftly follow suit and pass the Inflation Reduction Act post haste.
