Oct 26, 2015

NEW HAMPSHIRE —In response to Senator Kelly Ayotte announcing support for the Clean Power Plan, Rob Werner, LCV New Hampshire State Director, issued the following statement:

“We are thrilled that Senator Kelly Ayotte is standing up to big polluters by joining Senator Jeanne Shaheen, Congresswoman Ann McLane Kuster and Governor Maggie Hassan in supporting the Clean Power Plan.  Her support for this commonsense plan to cut carbon pollution from coal-burning power plants comes at a critical time as congressional attacks on it are expected to ramp up in the coming weeks.  A majority of elected officials here in New Hampshire know that the Clean Power Plan is achievable, and our state is well positioned to meet our carbon reduction targets through the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI).”
