State Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli has joined a national coalition in supporting the country's Clean Power Plan.
The Trump administration is urging the EPA to repeal the greenhouse gas reducing regulation. Officials from eleven states are lobbying the EPA to rebuff Trump's intentions. The group argues the move will harm the environment and the nation's economy.
Industry is already shifting toward a low carbon economy, and DiNapoli states that stalling this shift will hinder the nation's status in the international marketplace, costing the country billions of dollars each year.
