Americans for Prosperity to Udall: How are EPA Regs a “Good Start”?

Jun 3, 2014 by AFP

Catastrophic New Rules May be a “Good Start” for Steyer’s Ideological Policies, but Not Coloradans

Parker, Colo. – Americans for Prosperity – Colorado is asking Senator Mark Udall to clarify his remarks that the EPA’s new carbon regulations are a “good start.” Noting the undisputed cost of the regulations to jobs and the economy and the Obama administration’s own admission that the regulations are “unlikely” to have a positive environmental benefit, AFP is asking Senator Udall to clarify what he meant.

“Senator Udall, help us understand: how are these new regulations, which you know will destroy thousands of jobs and substantially increase the cost of our utilities, a “good start”? Given that the regulations are “unlikely” to improve the environment they are ostensibly created to protect, are they merely a good start towards placating ideological funders and interest groups?” asked Dustin Zvonek Colorado State Director of Americans for Prosperity. “I, and the more than 80,000 members of Americans for Prosperity – Colorado welcome his explanation.”

Zvonek continued:

Based on the undisputed facts, the only real winner with the EPA’s new rules is billionaire leftist ideologue Tom Steyer, who has been influencing politicians like Udall to adopt increasingly radical policies that hurt the constituents they claim to help. Senator Udall surely has a better defense of his support for these policies, and we’d like to know what it is.”
