"The Inflation Reduction Act was a historic investment in our stable climate future, but we can’t get there without tackling emissions from the power sector, and quickly. The proposed rule targets those emissions, enacting science-based targets that can be achieved with a diverse set of approaches. This is a historic opportunity to put the US on a path of global leadership on the challenge of our time, and in doing so, secure lasting benefits for public health, national security, our economy, and the environment."
