WASHINGTON, D.C.—Karen Harbert, president and CEO of the U.S. Chamber’s Global Energy Institute, issued the following statement today regarding EPA’s formal action proposing repeal of the Clean Power Plan:

“We have always believed that there is a better way to approach greenhouse gas regulations than the CPP. The CPP exceeded EPA’s authority, but we are optimistic that a true collaboration between the federal government, states, and affected stakeholders will provide a more durable and achievable approach. We welcome the opportunity to work with the EPA and other stakeholders to develop power plant standards that lower emissions, preserve America’s energy advantage, and respect the bounds of the Clean Air Act.”
