    White House to hold Inflation Reduction Act briefings this week

    Throughout the week of August 15, the White House will hold a series of four briefings to discuss the Inflation Reduction Act (IRA). This legislation was passed by Congress earlier this month and includes several key provisions related to climate and energy, healthcare, tax reform and deficit reduction.
