Finally, an EPA rule business can support

September 7, 2018


By US Chamber of Commerce,

Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement regarding EPA’s proposed Affordable Clean Energy Rule on electric power plants, which replaces the Clean Power Plan issued by the previous administration:

“The Chamber believes that the global climate is changing, and that human activities contribute to those changes. At the same time, the Chamber has long maintained that there is a better way to address carbon dioxide emissions than the Clean Power Plan regulation, which was halted by the Supreme Court in 2016. The announcement is an important step toward a more collaborative process that fits within EPA’s statutory authority and will result in achievable progress through more practical, state-driven programs. This revised approach will help continue the trend of lower electric power sector emissions while preserving America’s energy edge and respecting environmental law. We look forward to reviewing the proposal in detail and actively participating in the regulatory process.”

The mission of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Global Energy Institute is to unify policymakers, regulators, business leaders, and the American public behind a common sense energy strategy to help keep America secure, prosperous, and clean. Through policy development, education, and advocacy, the Institute is building support for meaningful action at the local, state, national, and international levels.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is the world’s largest business federation representing the interests of more than 3 million businesses of all sizes, sectors, and regions, as well as state and local chambers and industry associations.
