Chairs Rodgers and Johnson Announce Hearing on President Biden’s Agenda to Jeopardize Reliable and Affordable Energy for States
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Environment, Manufacturing, & Critical Materials Subcommittee Chair Bill Johnson (R-OH) today announced a hearing titled "Clean Power Plan 2.0: EPA's Effort to Jeopardize Reliable and Affordable Energy for States.”
The Chairs released the following statement:
“Electricity is vital for hospitals, military bases, homes, and businesses across America. Recent proposals, like the Clean Power Plan 2.0 from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA), will force states to fundamentally change how they generate electricity and will raise costs across the board. These new proposed rules will result in lasting damage to energy reliability and accessibility. In addition, they go well beyond the EPA’s congressionally mandated authority and potentially violate the recent Supreme Court decision in West Virginia v. EPA. In this subcommittee hearing, we will hear from state officials about how the EPA’s efforts affect the various states’ abilities to provide affordable, reliable energy to power local economies, keep people safe, and preserve their livelihoods.”
Environment, Manufacturing, and Critical Materials Subcommittee hearing titled "Clean Power Plan 2.0: EPA's Effort to Jeopardize Reliable and Affordable Energy for States.”
WHAT: An Environment, Manufacturing, and Critical Materials Subcommittee hearing to discuss EPA regulations that threaten American energy reliability and compromise states’ rights.
