The Obama administration Monday announced its ambitious rule to curb climate change and cut carbon emissions by 32 percent in the next 15 years.
Arizona officials are still analyzing the Environmental Protection Agency’s 1,560-page final Clean Power Plan, though it appears the final rule lessens the targets for the state and brings them more in line with the region.
The draft of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan called for Arizona to reduce its carbon emissions by 52 percent by 2030, the second-highest percentage reduction of any state. Under the proposed rule, the majority of the reduction would need to be met by 2020.
