US climate bill clears Senate hurdle

The bill, a product of 18-months of intense wrangling, will now be sent to the Democratic-controlled House where it could pass as soon as this week.

The Inflation Reduction Act includes $369bn (£305bn) for climate action - the largest investment in US history.

Its authors say it will reduce US carbon emissions by 40% by 2030.

It would also raise corporate taxes and lower healthcare costs as part of a package surpassing $700bn (£580bn), which the White House says will pay for itself.

this could be historic as long as it passes the house of representatives
i can see this being a fantastic legacy for Jo & the democrats
