FreedomWorks Applauds the EPA’s Release of Affordable Clean Energy Rule

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalizing its rule to replace the Obama-era Clean Power Plan, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“FreedomWorks commends the EPA for continuing its efforts to ‘drain the swamp’ by cutting regulatory red tape. The Clean Power Plan is yet another way the Obama administration tried to stifle investment and innovation in our nation’s energy sector and burden Americans with higher energy costs.

“By giving more power to our states and allowing the free market more leeway to innovate, we can reduce emissions without heavy-handed government mandates. Such a system will be far more affordable and reliable for American taxpayers going forward.”
