Senate passes Inflation Reduction Act to address drug pricing, energy

Hello, OnPolitics readers!

President Joe Biden saw firsthand Monday what he described as “incredibly heartbreaking” devastation unleashed by flash flooding that killed at least 37 people in southeastern Kentucky and left a path of destruction across several counties.

Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear, who accompanied Biden and first lady Jill Biden, described the flooding as “unlike anything we’ve ever seen.”

Hundreds of people were displaced from their homes by the flooding and mudslides, and others remain stranded without water, electricity or other critical supplies. The National Guard airlifted more than 1,300 people out of the flooded areas, while state police and other agencies rescued thousands of others, Beshear said.

Biden has declared 13 counties federal disaster areas.

It’s Amy with today’s top stories out of Washington.
