The EPA issued a draft regulation to limit carbon pollution from existing power plants. This regulation presents the single best policy opportunity to reduce heat-trapping gases this decade. If designed well and implemented on schedule, the rule and accompanying state plans will reduce power-sector global warming emissions 25 percent by 2020. The Partnership Project hosts a coordinated coalition of national environmental groups and others to conduct strategic, coordinated communications and organizing activities to defend EPA’s authority to issue such rules, and to ensure that the power plant rule is effective and on schedule. Since approval of this grant and other EPA rule oriented grants reported in the docket, EPA released the draft regulation described above. This is an important step in the process of securing a strong final regulation that will cut electric sector GHG emissions by 30% by 2030.
