Senator David Perdue: Prioritizing America’s Energy Independence

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA) applauds the Trump Administration’s action to replace Obama-era energy regulations with the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) proposal:

“Prioritizing America’s energy independence is a key component of President Trump’s plan to get the economy going again. Low cost energy is essential to keeping us competitive with other countries. By rolling back stifling, Obama-era regulations, the Trump Administration is giving power back to the States to decide what’s best for their industries. It’s refreshing to have a President who is committed to fighting for American workers and growing the economy, instead of a political agenda.”

Senator Perdue opposed the Obama Administration’s overreaching “Clean Power Plan” introduced in 2015 and applauded President Trump last year for dismantling the Obama-era regulations on coal-fired power plants.
