Clean Power Plan draws Austin support

Thursday, August 6, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano

As reported by Community Impact, yesterday Austin braved typical Texas heat to celebrate the federal Clean Power Plan, which will help reduce carbon pollution from power plants. Speakers at the rally included state Rep. Donna Howard (D-Austin), Austin Mayor Steve Adler, Austin City Council members Greg Casar, Delia Garza, Ann Kitchen and Leslie Pool and Rev. Amelia Fulbright. Members of Sierra Club, Environment Texas, Public Citizen, Environmental Defense Fund, Texas Physicians for Social Responsibility, SEED Coalition, Texas Impact and Austin Energy were also on hand to support the plan. For those who are curious about the Clean Power Plan, there is lots of information available on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website, here.
