EPA new rule step in the right direction but still does not address carbon endangerment finding

June 19, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement in response to the EPA ending the Clean Power Plan:

“The EPA action is a step in the right direction but by leaving the carbon endangerment finding in place, the knife is still at the throats of the coal industry. Although the new standards some states will adopt should be technically feasible for coal power plants to still exist, it will remain a risky endeavor to invest when the carbon allowed standard is one national or state election away from becoming technologically impossible again.”
