Texas congressional delegation warns again federal pollution rules


Thursday’s Dallas Morning News blog post by James Osborne calls attention to a bipartisan letter from almost the entire Texas congressional delegation stating Congress, not the EPA, should be directing climate change policy.  The letter also questions how the EPA is going to apply the law on existing fossil fuel power plants.

From the letter, which calls for standards to be set by the states:

“EPA should recognize that Texans require an all-of-the-above approach to power generation, not one that will raise the cost of electricity by selectively eliminating certain types of fossil fuels. … If regulatory changes result in the retirement of a significant amount of generation capacity, it will lead to higher electricity rates, threats to grid reliability, and a loss of jobs.”
