Additional Information On the EPA's Coal Power Regulations
The Obama Administration’s Environmental Protection Agency is considering regulations that threaten to shutdown rural Arizona’s four coal-fired power plants: Navajo Generating Station (NGS) near Page, Coronado Generating Station (CGS) near St. Johns, the Cholla Power Plant near Joseph City, and the Apache Generating Station (AGS) near Willcox. These regulations extend far beyond the EPA’s authority and threaten high-paying jobs, Arizona’s water supply, and affordable electricity.
Congressman Gosar strongly opposes the EPA’s overreaching regulations and has worked diligently throughout his first term in Congress to stop them. This past spring, he hosted a field hearing in Arizona to examine the impact of federal actions on the price of water and energy in the state. Additionally, the House Natural Resources Committee hosted a hearing in Washington D.C, to examine diverse economic impacts of proposed EPA mandates on the NGS.
