Congressman Garamendi Applauds Environmental Protections Agency’s Clean Power Plan
WASHINGTON, DC –Congressman John Garamendi (D-Fairfield, CA) issued the following statement in response to the Environmental Protection Agency’s release of the Clean Power Plan (CPP):
“As a member of the Safe Climate Caucus, I believe that reversing the dangerous trends of global warming and climate change is the central challenge of our time. The Clean Power Plan will make significant progress towards reducing the emissions that contribute to climate change, while giving states the flexibility to meet the reduction goals set by the EPA in the way most convenient to them.
“Thanks to California’s forward-thinking environmental and energy policies, our state is already well on its way to meeting the emissions reductions goals required of us by 2030. I applaud the Environmental Protection Agency and the Obama Administration for taking such bold action, and I congratulate Governor Brown and the California legislature for leading our state in the right direction.”
