Our Core Principles

Cost-Effective Regulations

Ensure that any greenhouse gas regulations are cost effective, attainable and protect American jobs and the economy.

Technologically Achievable

Regulations must be reasonable and technologically achievable, allowing for the continued affordability and reliability of electricity.

Domestic Energy Sources

Regulations should allow for all of our domestic energy resources to play a role in a true “all-of-the-above” energy strategy.

Broad Stakeholder Input

The Administration should seek broad stakeholder input from the regulated community, energy consumers and other concerned citizens.

Thorough Benefit Analysis

The Administration must perform a thorough analysis of costs and benefits, accounting for the cascading effects costly energy regulations will have on businesses, markets, employment and households.

Robust, Inclusive Rulemaking

Perhaps most important, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) should take the time to get these regulations right. The agency should prioritize ensuring a robust, inclusive rulemaking process over meeting arbitrary and rushed deadlines.
