IMA responds to Obama's carbon emission plan

By The Madison County Record | Jun 2, 2014

To the Editor:

President Obama's plan will eliminate thousands of Illinois jobs and increase costs for families. National estimates show this rule could reduce economic output by $50 billion while destroying 800,000 jobs. Our country needs an all of the above approach that includes coal, nuclear, natural gas, and renewable sources of energy. The president's unilateral decision that bypasses Congress will increase energy costs making it more difficult for the manufacturing sector to compete globally.  It further shows the need for Governor Quinn and the Department of Natural Resources to implement hydraulic fracturing rules so Illinois can develop its own energy resources
