U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer (R-AL) opposes the rule announced by the Obama Administration that would force power plants to make major cuts to carbon dioxide emissions. Experts say it will be one of the most costly rules of all time.
"The EPA's release of its final rule to regulate emissions from power plants continues the overreaching, agenda-driven policy that we have seen frequently from the EPA under this administration," Palmer said. "American workers and their families, particularly the most economically vulnerable, can ill afford the real-life costs of this rule, which will result in significant utility rate increases and lost jobs with little to no measurable environmental impact. With my support, the House has already taken action by passing a bill to delay this costly rule, which faces serious legal challenges. I will continue to work to fight this rule and protect the American people from this costly agenda."
