Rabe on the effects of the Inflation Reduction Act in West Virginia

September 11, 2023 Newsweek

Barry Rabe, Newsweek: "I think the inflation Reduction Act and the bipartisan infrastructure legislation are really set up to potentially provide substantial benefits for West Virginia, as it begins to accelerate this transition away from fossil fuels," Barry Rabe, a nonresident senior fellow with the Brookings Institution and a University of Michigan professor specialized in energy and environmental policy, told Newsweek.

"Red states, where their entire congressional delegation voted against the IRA, are lining up for the benefits," he added, "which is a super interesting dynamic going into the 2024 election."
