EPA Proposed Repeal of Carbon Pollution Emission Guidelines for Existing Stationary Sources

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce strongly supports the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed repeal of the Clean Power Plan (CPP), and encourages the agency to instead develop more durable and achievable standards that preserve America’s energy advantage while respecting the bounds of the Clean Air Act.

Put simply, the CPP is unlawful, and a bad deal for America. It would drive up electricity costs for businesses, consumers and families, impose tens of billions in annual implementation and compliance costs, and reduce our nation’s global competitiveness—without any significant reduction in global greenhouse gas emissions.
