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.
