Landrieu: Proposed EPA Rules Not Practical & Hurt Domestic Energy Production, Job Creation

September 20, 2013

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., today released the following statement on proposed rules by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on new natural gas and coal power plants.

"It is vital that we maintain a diverse mix of energy sources and pursue an all-of-the-above strategy to achieve energy independence. Natural gas and coal provide our nation with abundant and affordable energy, but these proposed regulations will drive domestic energy production down and electricity costs up for our families," Sen. Landrieu said. "The EPA's regulations for coal plants are also not practical. Requiring them to use technology that has not been proven viable in industrial settings is completely backward. If these overzealous regulations take hold, we will lose ground on the progress we have made in energy independence, increased manufacturing and economic growth."
