PUC Chair Blasts EPA’s Clean Power Plan at Texas Tech Law School Event
Donna Nelson, chairman of the Public Utility Commission of Texas, doesn’t mince words about her views concerning the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan.
On March 2, she gave a speech titled “Power, the EPA and Texas” at the Texas Tech Law School’s Energy Law Series and said that the proposed Clean Power Plan is really a carbon tax.
“The EPA recognizes that it doesn’t have the authority to pass such a tax,” she said. “So the EPA is trying to get states to come up with ideas to make it workable.”
