Statement from Governor Hassan on United States Supreme Court Action on Clean Power Plan

CONCORD – Governor Maggie Hassan issued the following statement on yesterday’s action by the Supreme Court of the United States on the Clean Power Plan:

“New Hampshire has long led efforts to cut carbon emissions and combat climate change so that we can have the cleaner and safer environment that our people need to live healthy, productive lives – and it's crucial that other states follow our lead and take responsibility for the pollution that they cause. Through programs such as the Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative, our region is showing that it is possible to protect public health, spur energy innovation, and promote affordable, reliable energy sources for our economy. That's why I have been a strong supporter of the Clean Power Plan, and the Supreme Court's decision to delay this important step forward is very disappointing.”
