The Utility MACT rule will expand the already vast powers given to the EPA by the Clean Air Act, increasing red tape and imposing billions in new costs on the economy.
EPA’s Utility MACT rule (up for a vote very soon, possibly by Monday 6/11/12) is purportedly designed to reduce mercury emissions from coal- and oil-fired power plants, BUT even the EPA admits this will have almost no health or environmental benefits. The real goal is to shut down coal plants across the country and fulfill the President’s promise that “if somebody wants to build a coal plant, they can—it’s just that it will bankrupt them.”
There’s a lot at stake. Unless the Senate acts, power plants that produce enough energy to light 15 million American households will be forced into early retirement. More than a million U.S. jobs will be destroyed in the coming years. Electricity bills will increase by an average of 12% nationwide and by as much as 24% in coal-heavy regions.
Enough is enough when it comes to absurd Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations!
What can be done to stop the Utility MACT?
Support S.J Res. 37 (introduced by Sen. Jim Inhofe) which, if passed, will overturn this awful EPA Utility MACT rule (an unnecessary and costly regulation).
Without the Senate on board, there’s no chance to stop the EPA.
Please call your Senator right now and ask them to support S.J Res. 37
