Secretary Jewell Statement on EPA Clean Power Plan Proposal

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell today released the following statement after the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued the Clean Power Plan proposal:

"The President understands that we have a moral obligation to future generations to leave our land, water, and wildlife better than we found it.

"From standing up homegrown renewable energy and transmission infrastructure, to reducing methane emissions while supporting safe and responsible energy development, to making lands and waters more resilient in the face of climate change, the Interior Department is committed to being a strong partner in cutting carbon pollution and creating American jobs.

"The common sense steps being taken by the Environmental Protection Agency will protect public health while providing states with the flexibility they need to make informed decisions about the mix of energy sources that works best for them."
