Senator Lankford Statement on EPA Power Plan Rule

WASHINGTON, DC – Senator James Lankford (R-OK) today released the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) latest rule to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants:

“The latest and final emissions rule for power plants released by the EPA has minimal environmental benefits with major economic repercussions to Americans,” said Lankford. “This regulation appears to be more messaging than solution, but the pain to the American consumer will be profound. The rule will slow ingenuity and Americans will notice the significant effect every month when they pay their utility bill. I will continue to work against this apparent overreach from the EPA.”
