“Te EPA’s proposal implements a convoluted new maze of government hoops and red tape for consumers, utility providers, state legislatures and regulators to decipher,” said Jo Ann Emerson, NRECA CEO. “More than any other law on the books, the EPA’s proposal will dictate exactly how American families and businesses use electricity. Tese new layers of bureaucratic red tape jeopardize the ability of electric co- ops to provide affordable, reliable electricity to our more than 42 million members across the country.”


The EPA proposal requires every state to file compliance plans to achieve specific emission targets. As illustrated, state compliance plans will involve many more regulators, legislators, and regulated entities than any other environmental regulation to date.

According to a national survey of 1,340 likely voters and 11 statewide surveys of likely voters conducted earlier this month by Paragon Insights, a majority of voters believe the United States cannot afford new costs and potential job losses resulting from the EPA’s proposed greenhouse gas (GHG) regulations.


Other key findings of the surveys further illustrate the concerns held broadly by voters nationwide and even more intensely by voters in states that could be disproportionately impacted by these rules.


Nearly half of voters say they are not willing to pay a single dollar more in their energy bill to accommodate the EPA regulations: 45 percent of voters say they are not willing to pay more in their monthly energy bill.
