US climate bill passes final hurdle before Biden signs it into law

A bill that aims to help the US meet its climate targets has passed its final hurdle and is expected to be signed into law by President Joe Biden next week.

The Inflation Reduction Act is a dramatically scaled-back version of a previous bill backed by Mr Biden that was blocked by maverick Democrat senators, but will still lead to major reductions in green house gas emissions, say experts.
