Chairs Rodgers, Johnson Announce Hearing on EPA’s Proposed Power Plant Rules
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Environment, Manufacturing, and Critical Materials Subcommittee Chair Bill Johnson (R-OH) today announced a hearing titled “Clean Power Plan 2.0: EPA’s Latest Attack on America’s Electric Reliability.”
“Energy is foundational to our way of life in America. It's because of our abundant and reliable energy resources that we have led the way in lifting people out of poverty, raising the standard of living, and reducing emissions,” said Chairs Rodgers and Johnson. “President Biden’s rush-to-green, so-called climate agenda is reversing this progress by shuttering reliable baseload power sources, raising costs, and threatening energy blackouts. This hearing will explore how the Environmental Protection Agency’s latest proposed power plant rules could make these problems worse and add new costly burdens to important energy sources like natural gas, which is responsible for a significant portion of emission reductions. We look forward to hearing from expert witnesses on why the EPA should abandon these dangerous efforts and focus instead on ensuring reliable and affordable energy for our communities across the nation.”
