Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel – Statement on EPA Rollback

WASHINGTON – Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel released the following statement on U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Scott Pruitt’s decision to sign a proposed rule withdrawing from the Obama Clean Power Plan:

“I applaud the EPA’s proposal to rescind the Obama Clean Power Plan,” said Chairwoman McDaniel. “This plan was nothing but a power grab by the EPA to impose more regulations that would ultimately devastate America’s electricity industry, raise prices on consumers, and wreak havoc on our economy. This is a positive first step towards restoring the EPA to its’ traditional scope of authority while returning decision-making power back to the states.”
