If it becomes the law of the land, the Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed Clean Power Plan will drive up the price of electricity in Missouri and lead to the destruction of good-paying jobs in energy-intensive industries like manufacturing. More than that, it would radically reshape the relationship between federal and state governments, removing decision-making about how a state generates electricity from the state Capitol to EPA headquarters.
Thanks to Sen. Blunt, Gov. Nixon could have the tools to protect Missouri’s economy from this latest egregious federal overreach, but will he take advantage of it?
