May 15, 2023
Raleigh, N.C. – Following the release by the EPA of its proposed rules to limit carbon pollution from new and existing power plants, Dan Crawford, director of governmental relations of North Carolina League of Conservation Voters, made the following statement:
“The NC League of Conservation Voters believes the proposed rules to limit carbon pollution from new and existing fossil-fueled power plants are an important step in the right direction for cleaner air and healthier communities for North Carolinians. We appreciate this effort by President Biden and Administrator Regan, and urge the EPA to finalize the strongest possible rules by early next year. Additionally, these rules will help inform the ongoing work by the NC Utilities Commission to implement the carbon plan signed last year by Gov. Roy Cooper.”
The North Carolina League of Conservation Voters (NCLCV) is a pragmatic, results-oriented, nonpartisan advocacy organization whose mission is to protect the health and quality of life for all North Carolinians, with an intentional focus on systematically excluded communities of color. We elect environmental champions, advocate for environmental policies that protect our communities, and hold elected leaders accountable for their decisions. We have worked for over 50 years to create the political environment that will protect our natural environment.
