WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cynthia Lummis (R-WY) questioned witnesses about the impact of the Biden administration’s far-left green agenda on Wyoming jobs and energy grid during a Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works hearing. Senator Lummis raised particular concern about the impact of the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed Good Neighbor Rule.
“The final rule is anticipated to close more than 14,000 megawatts generated by coal fired power plants,” said Senator Lummis. “Now let me state this clearly –- premature closure of coal fired power plants in this nation is a danger to American energy security and grid reliability. This rule and other regulatory actions taken by the EPA would cripple are ability to provide affordable, reliable, baseload energy to power our nation.”
Senator Lummis pointed out that the EPA’s rush to implement the Good Neighbor Rule risks making the energy grids that power Wyoming households and businesses become unreliable.
