ACCCE Statement on EPA’s Illegal Carbon Emission Rule to be Published in Federal Register
October 22, 2015
Washington, D.C. – Mike Duncan, president and CEO of the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, today issued the following statement in response to news reports the Environmental Protection Agency’s will publish the Clean Power Plan rule in the Federal Register on Friday, October 23, 2015.
“With this action, EPA is finally opening the floodgates for litigation against its deeply flawed, illegal carbon rule. Officials preparing for the upcoming climate change talks in Paris should take note of the widespread opposition from policymakers and elected officials across the Unites States who are working overtime to protect their constituents, state economies and the nation as a whole from the President’s reckless pursuit of his climate legacy. We are hopeful they will be successful and that the courts act quickly and decisively to quash this illegal rule.”
