Press Release

Ballwin, Missouri – U.S. Congresswoman Ann Wagner released the following statement on the Obama Administration's newest carbon restrictions:

"Today's final rule shows that the EPA is not considering the impact that such a regulation will have on jobs and ratepayers, especially for a state like Missouri, which generates over 80 percent of its electricity from coal. Make no mistake; this ruling will affect middle income Missourians who are already struggling to make ends meet. That is why I introduced the EPA Regulatory Domestic Benefit Act to require the EPA to more closely scrutinize costs and benefits for the American people.‎ President Obama's war on affordable energy is a reckless attack on America's middle class."
