House Energy Testimony from Indiana Department of Environmental Management Commissioner Thomas Easterly (September 9, 2014)

Easterly told the Energy and Power Subcommittee that the proposal could make electricity more expensive, meaning Indiana’s manufacturing industry might be driven out of the state. He argued U.S. carbon emissions would decline but international emissions would increase as a result.

More than 80 percent of Indiana’s power comes from coal.
