  • Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.Va., says he would support the repeal of the Inflation Reduction Act, which includes major climate, health, and tax provisions, if the Biden administration does not change course in implementing fossil fuel investments in the legislation, NBC News reported.
  • Manchin told Sean Hannity on Fox that $384 billion of the Inflation Reduction Act was allocated for energy security.
  • “Now they’ve disregarded that completely, what was agreed upon — and they know exactly what we agreed upon,” Manchin said. “This was energy security, and you have not heard the word energy security out of their mouth since it was passed. It’s all about environment.”
