State decision makers, from Governors and their administrations to utility regulators and lawmakers, are working to address the economic headwinds facing families and businesses – combating inflation, creating jobs, and building an American energy future that’s more affordable, reliable, clean, and independent. With deep roots in their states and communities, these leaders are working to make sure the benefits of this transition – from new jobs and investment to cleaner air and more affordable electricity – flow to those who need them most.  The Inflation Reduction Act (IRA) and bipartisan Infrastructure Investment & Jobs Act (IIJA, also known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law) contain a wealth of resources, programs, and incentives to support all this work.
