Statement from Governor Andrew M. Cuomo on Trump Administration's Actions to Replace the Clean Power Plan

Posted to Applied Web NY on Wed, 06/19/2019 - 10:39

"The Federal Government's toothless replacement of the Clean Power Plan will increase emissions, air pollution, and extreme weather, and further jeopardize the nation's promising clean energy economy to the detriment of the American people.    

"While the Trump administration's EPA continues to put our economy, children and planet at risk, New York is leading the nation and accomplishing real results with the New York State Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act that establishes the most aggressive greenhouse gas emissions targets in the United States. 

"But we cannot do it alone, and if Washington and the rest of the nation need a model they should look to New York as we lead the transition to a clean energy economy, protect the health and well-being of our residents and attract clean energy jobs of tomorrow."
