“For too long, the fossil fuel industry has obstructed efforts to reduce pollution from power plants – one of the highest sources of carbon emissions in the nation. But now, the Environmental Protection Agency is moving forward to reduce this harmful pollution and put the U.S. on a path to clean electricity. Strong rules are affordable, achievable, and absolutely necessary to protect public health.”
