WASHINGTON, D.C. – Attorney General Dustin McDaniel met this morning with Avi Garbow, General Counsel of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, to discuss the possible ramifications of a proposed Clean Air Act rule related to carbon emissions.

“I’m very appreciative that General Counsel Garbow made time to meet with me today to discuss how the proposed rule may affect Arkansas,” McDaniel said. “The meeting was productive and a step in the right direction.”

The proposed rule concerns carbon emissions from electric generating units and may affect Arkansas’s utility rates. The attached letter from McDaniel to Mr. Garbow details concerns related to the rule proposal and several suggested changes that the EPA could consider that would lessen the impact of the proposal on Arkansans.
