Rep. Tulsi Gabbard on Facebook: Clean Power Plan

October 11, 2017
Press Release

"This Administration has taken its latest step backwards in the fight to preserve and protect our environment by repealing the Clean Power Plan, which required states to fulfill specific carbon emission goals based on their individual energy consumption. This plan was a monumental step forward towards combating climate change, and prioritized the health of our children, our planet, and our future over handouts to corporations and the fossil fuel industry. Thankfully, cities and states across the country, like the state of #Hawaii, have stepped up to protect our environment and are committed to address the climate change crisis head on. We must build on the progress of states like Hawai‘i and take bold action. My bill, the OFF Act, would transition our country to a clean energy economy by 2035, and help to increase our competitiveness, improve the health and well-being of our people, and protect the environment for future generations."
