NMA Dismisses EPA’s Federal Plan for Power Plants

Statement from NMA President and CEO Hal Quinn


National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Hal Quinn issued the following statement today before the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) scheduled public hearing in Washington, D.C. on the federal plan for reducing carbon emissions from power plants:

“EPA’s federal plan is a cap-and-trade scheme rejected by members of Congress from both parties. It again shows that the Clean Power Plan offers governors no reasonable choices for meeting EPA’s demands. This is a plan purposefully designed to usurp state jurisdiction and transform the nation’s power grid by a federal agency that lacks the competence and authority to do so.”


The National Mining Association (NMA) is the voice of the American mining industry in Washington, D.C. Membership includes more than 325 corporations involved in all aspects of coal and solid minerals production including coal, metal and industrial mineral producers, mineral processors, equipment manufacturers, state mining associations, bulk transporters, engineering firms, consultants, financial institutions and other companies that supply goods and services to the mining industry.
