Statement from Governor Gina M. Raimondo on the Trump Administration's Decision to Repeal the Clean Power Plan

Governor Gina M. Raimondo released the following statement today in response to the Trump Administration's announcement that they will repeal the Clean Power Plan:

"The repeal of the Clean Power Plan is the latest in a series of disappointing and misguided actions taken by the Trump Administration that threaten our progress on climate change and put our states - and nation - at great risk. This move will not stifle our efforts or leadership in Rhode Island. We're the only state in America with an offshore wind farm; we're making it easier for homeowners and businesses to invest in clean energy resources; we're working to make our energy system ten times cleaner; and we're partnering with other states to cut greenhouse gas emissions in the region, all while creating new clean energy jobs for our economy. As a coastal state, Rhode Island is uniquely vulnerable to a changing climate. Its effects are already being felt here, and we must continue our work to prepare for the expected impacts and to mitigate further environmental harm."
