Senator Maggie Hassan Statement on President Trump's Executive Order Rolling Back the Clean Power Plan

WASHINGTON - Senator Maggie Hassan released the following statement on President Trump's Executive Order rolling back the Clean Power Plan:

"From our White Mountains to our beautiful Seacoast, New Hampshire's beautiful natural resources define us as a state and I am extremely concerned by President Trump's efforts to roll back the Clean Power Plan's common-sense environmental protections. Granite Staters know that protecting our environment while building a stronger, more affordable energy future is critical for our families and our businesses. New Hampshire has been a leader in efforts to cut carbon emissions, conserve our natural resources, and combat climate change and we need to see similar efforts at the federal level. That's why I have been a strong supporter of the Clean Power Plan, and I will continue fighting for a cleaner environment and stronger renewable energy future that reduces our dependence on fossil fuels and helps our citizens, businesses, and economy thrive."
