Mishawaka, Ind. – Rep. Jackie Walorski (IN-02) today issued the following statement regarding the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) final Clean Power Plan unveiled by President Obama and EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy:
“With one of the highest shares of manufacturing jobs in congressional districts across the country, Hoosiers farmers, manufacturers, and landowners understand we must be good stewards of our environment,” Walorski said. “However, no agency has been more overreaching as the EPA and the Clean Power Plan will only hurt Hoosiers’ ability to keep energy costs low, create jobs, and expand the economy. I am committed to holding the Obama administration accountable to stop their ‘regulatory spree’ and protect what matters most – Hoosier jobs and energy.”
Walorski represents the 2nd Congressional District in Indiana, where she serves as a member of the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee, House Armed Services Committee and House Committee on Agriculture.
