Strong Federal Backstop for Clean Power Plan Will Ensure Every State is Cutting Pollution

WASHINGTON - On the heels of the announcement that 2015 was the hottest year on record, today the public comment period closes for the federal backstop for the Clean Power Plan, President Obama’s central strategy to tackle global warming.

The Clean Power Plan sets state-by-state carbon pollution limits on power plants and requires states to develop their own paths to meet targets largely through energy efficiency and clean energy. The Federal Implementation Plan is the default emissions-reduction strategy for states that submit inadequate plans or no plans of their own.
