Out-of-Control EPA Regulations

On June 2, Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency unveiled new “rules” that will require coal-burning power plants to reduce their carbon emissions by 25% by 2030. According to The Associated Press, more than 32 mostly coal-fired power plants will close and another 36 plants could be forced to shut down. This legislation is predicted to decimate coal-producing states such as Wyoming, West Virginia and Kentucky, costing 220,000 jobs and $50 billion a year. The 577 coal-fired power plants currently generate 39 percent of U.S. electricity. Ask your Congressman to fight the EPA’s punitive regulations.
