New Poll: PA Voters Support More Emission Limits On Coal-Burning Power Plants

In the coal-rich Keystone State, voters support 67 – 28 percent federal requirements that owners of coal-burning power plants reduce pollution, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.
Republicans oppose the proposed limits 51 – 45 percent, but every other party, gender or age group supports them by wide margins.
Voters say 72 – 24 percent these efforts are needed to clean the air, but they are divided 44 – 44 percent on whether these efforts will be too expensive.
“The coal industry has put food on the table for many generations in Pennsylvania, but nostalgia only goes so far. Voters want cleaner air and they want the feds to police the pollution,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
