States Should Reject NACAA’s Calls to Implement Carbon Regulation

Today, the National Association of Clean Air Agencies (NACAA) held a press call to discuss a new document that attempts to pressure and mislead states into implementing the EPA’s carbon regulation, or “clean power plan.” AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement on NACAA’s efforts:
“The NACAA, which has received millions of dollars in grants from the EPA, is clearly acting as a proxy for the agency. Following the Supreme Court’s stay, the EPA is barred from enforcing the regulation, yet groups like NACAA are attempting to mislead states into implementing it anyway.
“State leaders have an obligation to protect their citizens from the EPA’s carbon regulation—a rule that would significantly raise electricity rates and disproportionately hurt low-income families. Moving forward with implementing the regulation is a waste of states’ time and resources, as the rule could eventually be thrown out, or at the very least be significantly changed. State leaders should reject any calls by the EPA, or its surrogates, to continue working on this legally dubious regulation.”
