Arizona Rep. Brenda Barton has recommended the repeal and replacement of the Environmental Protection Agency’s final proposed Clean Power Plan, suggesting that it could be problematic to the state.

Even after the Clean Power Plan, which aims to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from electric utility generating units, was granted a stay by the U.S. Supreme Court, Rep. Barton proposed bill HCM2006. First read Feb. 8, it urged the EPA and the secretary of the Department of Energy to develop a strategy that interferes less with Arizona’s coal-fired electric generation industry. That new strategy, as suggested in HCM2006, is one that works to, “attain the best technology available for clean, economic and efficient coal-fired systems.”
