Matsui Statement on President Trump’s Executive Order Rolling Back the Clean Power Plan

Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Doris Matsui (D-CA) released the following statement on President Trump’s executive order rolling back the Clean Power Plan:

“The Trump Administration just released another executive order, this time to reverse our progress on climate change. This will be devastating to the health and economic security of Americans.

“The Clean Power Plan has been a critical component of our global leadership to curb carbon pollution. In California, we’re already seeing the environmental and economic benefits of these types of clean energy investments.

“This executive order disregards the urgent need to protect all Americans from the severe impact of our changing climate.”
