REMINDER! EPA Training: 2022 Supplemental Proposal – Reducing Climate – and Health – Harming Pollution from the Oil and Natural Gas Sector. Registration is Required!

NEW! The White House: FACT SHEET: How the Inflation Reduction Act Helps Tribal Communities
By signing the Inflation Reduction Act, President Biden is delivering on his promise to meet the climate crisis and build an economy that works for working families, including Tribal nations and American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian families. The Inflation Reduction Act lowers prescription drug costs, health care costs, and energy costs. It’s the most aggressive action we have taken to confront the climate crisis. It’ll lower the deficit and ask the super wealthy and corporations to pay their fair share. And no one making under $400,000 per year will pay a penny more in taxes. Click Here for FACT SHEET.
