Statement from NextGen Climate America COO Dan Lashof on U.S. Court of Appeals Upholding Clean Power Plan Implementation

Today, the U.S. District Court of Appeals denied the motion by opponents of the Clean Power Plan to stay implementation of the rule in the face of legal challenges. In response, NextGen Climate America COO Dan Lashof released the following statement:

“Today’s decision is another defeat for polluters’ attempts to hold back our country’s growing clean energy economy. The Court today sent a clear signal that the Clean Power Plan’s limits on carbon pollution are legally justified, readily achievable, and critical to protecting Americans’ health.”
