In anticipation of the Environmental Protection Agency upcoming rule for existing power plants, 17 state attorneys general and Representative Ed Whitfield (R-KY) released a letter and white paper stating that the rule will exceed the agency’s Clean Air Act authority. The group said the rule will downplay the role of states and will harm the economy. Represented states include AK, AL, AZ, FL, GA, KS, KY, MI, MT, ND, NE, OH, OK, SC, SD, WI, WV, and IN.
