Mining group commends for challenge to EPA

The Colorado Mining Association commends Attorney General Cynthia Coffman for her leadership in joining other states challenging the EPA’s carbon regulations, according to a press release.

By joining this lawsuit, General Coffman seeks to protect Colorado consumers from skyrocketing electricity prices as well as increased costs for all goods and services that are produced using electricity, the association said.

The EPA regulations are flawed, will cost Colorado jobs, and threaten the reliability of the electrical grid by mandating a wholesale restructuring of our electricity system for no appreciable benefit to the climate, the mining association said.

Coffman’s announcement also demonstrates that Colorado is prepared to uphold the rule of law against a federal carbon regulatory scheme that is unprecedented in its over-reach of the authority provided under the Clean Air Act, the press release stated.

CMA is an industry association founded in 1876, whose more than 1,000 members include the producers of coal and other minerals throughout the west, as well as vendors and service providers to Colorado’s $8.8 billion industry.
