Rep. Waxman Statement on Proposed Carbon Pollution Standards for New Power Plants

Mar 27, 2012

Ranking Member Henry A. Waxman released the following statement in response to EPA’s proposed carbon pollution standards for new power plants:

“The proposal is a breakthrough. It sets achievable limits on dangerous carbon pollution, spurs investments in new clean energy technologies, and provides certainty for industry. And it shows the President is listening to scientists, not extremists who deny the existence of climate change. Today’s action will reduce pollution, make families healthier, promote innovation, and help us compete with China and other countries that are investing in clean energy.”
