Governor Pence: EPA Climate Rule ‘A Genuine Threat’ To Cheap Energy Read more:

16-Jul-2015 Indiana Gov. Mike Pence is joining a growing number of states threatening not to implement the key aspects of the Obama administration’s global warming agenda, arguing pending Environmental Protection Agency regulations would impose huge costs on Americans.

“One of the advantages in our economy has always been the affordability and reliability of electricity,” the Indiana Republican told reporters in a press conference hosted by the American Energy Alliance, “so the effort by the administration in the proposed rule… represents a genuine threat to the affordability of electricity.”

Pence joins Republican governors in Texas, Louisiana and Wisconsin opposing the EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” to limit carbon dioxide emissions from existing power plants. The proposed rule forces Indiana to reduce emissions from its power sector 20 percent below 2005 levels by 2030. (by MICHAEL BASTASCH, The Daily Caller)
