Sasse Statement Rollback of EPA Energy Rule

Issues: Energy

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse released the following statement after the EPA rollbacked Obama-era rules on coal-fired power plants.

"This rollback is good news. Unless you're going to a football game in Boulder, batteries don't just rain from the sky. The energy we use to power our economy has to come from somewhere and, right now, a lot of reliable energy comes from coal. We absolutely need to develop efficient and market-ready alternatives -- that's why I supported the Trump Administration's E-15 rule -- but we can't let Washington bureaucrats unplug our farms, homes, and businesses from dependable power."
