On June 2, 2014, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) made headlines by proposing a rule the agency calls the “Clean Power Plan.” This incredibly far-reaching regulation seeks to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from existing fossil fuel-fired power plants by 30 percent from 2005 levels.

The paper details many of their concerns with the proposed rule as written and highlights some of the efforts being made by state policymakers in response to the Clean Power Plan.
