Commissioners Sign on to Letter Blasting Clean Power Act

MC Commissioners-150The Moffat County Commissioners yesterday agreed to become signatories on a letter to Governor Hickenlooper that highlights the downfalls of the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Act. The letter was drafted by the Independence Institute, a think tank in Denver. The letter states that the Act will damage the state’s economy, while costing consumers hundreds more dollars per year in power costs. Commissioner Chuck Grobe sits on the Air Quality Control Commission, and abstained from the conversation. After agreeing to sign the letter, the commissioners were asked to draft their own letter at the recommendation of the public land use board. The board said there are other issues that are critical to Northwest Colorado that are not covered in the letter. They said a separate letter is needed to highlight those issues. The commissioners agreed and said they would draft one.
