Ending Clean Power Plan paves way for cheaper electricity, growth

Oct. 9, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement praising EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt for announcing that the Obama so-called Clean Power Plan is being withdrawn:

“The new and existing coal power plant rules under the Clean Power Plan was the Obama administration’s key to the war on coal, resulting in plant shutdowns across the country including the Ohio River Valley. EPA Administrator Scott Pruitt’s announcement that the Clean Power Plan will be ended opens the door for investment in coal-fired electricity generation. In order for the U.S. manufacturing to grow and thrive, the availability of inexpensive and reliable electricity is a must. Ending the Clean Power Plan, including all of its regulations, brings us one step closer to making America’s economy great again.”
