American Lung Association responds to EPA's ACE rule proposal

American Lung Association National President and CEO Harold P. Wimmer responds to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) release of the proposed Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule which would replace the 2015 Clean Power Plan:

"With today's proposal, President Trump and Acting EPA Administrator Wheeler abandon much-needed public health safeguards against power plant pollution, placing the health of all Americans at risk, and especially those who are most vulnerable, including children, older adults, and people with asthma and heart disease.

"Today's proposal is a dangerous substitute for the Clean Power Plan and a careless giveaway to polluters that will delay meaningful progress in the future. The United States must aggressively limit power plant carbon pollution to protect human health from the impacts of climate change, including degraded air quality and more extreme weather threats, such as hurricanes, wildfires and floods."
