CAP’s Carol M. Browner on the Publication of the Clean Power Plan in the Federal Register


WASHINGTON, D.C. – October 23, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Center for American Progress Distinguished Senior Fellow Carol M. Browner issued the following statement after the Clean Power Plan—the most aggressive action the United States has ever taken to combat climate change—was published in theFederal Register, making it implementable and enforceable.

The Clean Power Plan will provide significant health and economic benefits to all Americans by reducing dangerous carbon pollution that fuels climate change and by encouraging the development of clean renewable energy. While the rule’s publication marks the beginning of lawsuit season for opponents who seek to deny Americans these important health and economic benefits, the Clean Power Plan has a solid legal foundation that will withstand these legal challenges.
