PA Coal Alliance Statement On Repeal Of EPA Clean Power Climate Plan

Pennsylvania Coal Alliance Executive Director Rachel Gleason Tuesday issued the following statement on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s decision to repeal the Clean Power Plan--  
“Today’s proposed rulemaking to repeal the Clean Power Plan means that this far reaching and costly rule will no longer threaten our state’s economy and the jobs of over 30,000 hard working men and women in Pennsylvania.  
“The rule exceeded the EPA’s authority and circumvented state’s rights by mandating energy policy disguised as regulations, and was particularly discriminatory against Pennsylvania as one of the top producers of affordable baseload generation.   
“The repeal protects the reliability and resiliency of the power grid, protects ratepayers from significant electricity price increases, and protects our Commonwealth’s position as a net energy exporter.”
