Rutledge Applauds Final Rule Repealing And Replacing The Clean Power Plan

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge applauds today’s announcement by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency on the final ruling of President Donald J. Trump’s proposed replacement of the Clean Power Plan. The Affordable Clean Energy Final Rule comes after Rutledge joined a bipartisan letter urging the EPA to approve the Administration’s proposal.

“The Affordable Clean Energy rule is a big win for job creators across America by returning power back to states rather than a one-size-fits-all mandate from the federal government,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “The repealed Obama-era Clean Power Plan was illegal and ignored concerns from the states about anticipated skyrocketing utility rates and impacts on Arkansas businesses and jobs.”    MORE
