Billy Long: EPA regulations will increase every American's electric bill
U.S. Rep. Billy Long released the following statement on the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) new plan to regulate existing power plants.
"President Obama was unable to get his cap-and-trade proposal through Congress so now he and his EPA are proposing new rules attacking the country's largest source of electricity. Coal is one of America's most abundant and affordable sources of energy. Right now Americans are suffering from this bad economy. Despite this, the EPA is pressing forward with regulations that will increase the costs of every American's electric bill.
