Governor Pence Opposes EPA’s Carbon Dioxide Regulations
Start Date: 10/23/2015Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 10/23/2015
Entry Description
Indianapolis – Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency published its final Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Source: Electric Utility Generating Units, also known as President Obama’s Clean Power Plan.  Indiana and 23 other states immediately filed suit challenging the regulation.  Governor Mike Pence issued the following statement regarding the final regulation and the lawsuit:

“I firmly believe that the EPA’s carbon dioxide regulation exceeds the authority granted to the EPA by Congress under the Clean Air Act, and I am pleased that our Attorney General is working with attorneys general from across the country to invalidate the regulation in court.

“Indiana is a manufacturing state and a coal state.  Manufacturing requires low-cost electricity to help create jobs.  The 28,000 Hoosiers employed directly or indirectly by Indiana’s coal industry can help provide that low-cost electricity from Indiana’s 300-year supply of coal.  We have historically produced more than 80 percent of our electricity from coal, and Hoosiers know that coal means jobs and low-cost energy.

“The filing of today’s lawsuit is another step in fighting back against the Obama Administration’s war on coal.”
