Yarmuth Statement on Trump Administration's Proposed Rule to Scrap the Clean Power Plan

LOUISVILLE – Congressman John Yarmuth (KY-03) issued the statement below following the Trump Administration’s announcement of its formal plan to roll back President Obama’s Clean Power Plan proposal to reduce carbon emissions from power production.

“Today, the Trump Administration took another dangerous step in its continued assault on clean air, clean water, and a healthy future for Americans. Replacing the Clean Power Plan with this irresponsible plan is a complete giveaway to large corporate polluters and fossil fuel special interests at the expense of American families.  It will compromise our environment and the health and wellbeing of future generations, which the EPA’s own analysis confirms. I will fight this plan every step of the way.”
