Congressman Billy Long (MO-07) released the following statement after the Trump Administration announced their proposal to repeal the Clean Power Plan.

"I believe in an all-of-the-above energy approach but not at the expense of hardworking Americans," said Rep. Long. "Today, President Trump made the right choice by rolling back the Obama-era Clean Power Plan. This is the right move for our economy; it will save consumers $33 billion by 2030. I'm proud to stand with the president in doing away with regulations that unnecessarily burden businesses."
