Groups: Proposed Power-Plant Rules Will Mean Higher Electric Costs


Illinois officials and environmental groups say proposed new rules for power-plant emissions are attainable and manageable.

 

But business and trade groups say the proposal unveiled by President Obama Monday will mean higher costs for electricity… and fewer jobs.

 

The rules are aimed at reducing the amount of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

 

The head of the Illinois Energy Association notes that the rules are just preliminary… and thinks there is time to make changes that can minimize their negative impact.
