AFP’s Hasson on EPA Regulations for Power Plants

Jun 2, 2014 by AFP

AUSTIN — The Texas chapter of Americans for Prosperity is coming out in opposition to new proposed EPA regulations that would seek to force emissions down 30 percent by 2030.

Texas State Director Mike Hasson had the following to say:

“The Obama administration’s regulatory adventurism should not come at the expense of our economy. More than a third of Texas’ electricity comes from coal. As we enter into the hot summer months, Texans shouldn’t have to worry about major increases to their electric bills or wonder if they can afford to power their homes and businesses, especially when these rules are not expected to be effective in controlling changes to our climate. We shouldn’t be knee-capping the American economy while it’s still struggling.”
