Arizona Democrat Sen. Kyrsten Sinema said Thursday that she would “move forward” with fellow Democrats' Inflation Reduction Act as long as the carried interest provision is removed.

“We have agreed to remove the carried interest tax provision, protect advanced manufacturing, and boost our clean energy in the Senate’s budget reconciliation legislation,” she said.
