ACCCE Joins the Partnership for a Better Energy Future

This morning, the Partnership for a Better Energy Future, a coalition of stakeholders representing nearly every segment of the economy, officially launched an effort to act as a unified voice to support sensible energy reform.

At the launch event today, ACCCE President and CEO Mike Duncan joined a panel of representatives from the Institute for 21st Century Energy, the National Association of Manufacturers, the National Mining Association, the Fertilizer Institute the American Farm Bureau Federation, the Portland Cement Association and the American Gas Association.

These stakeholders, along with other members of the Partnership, are coming together because recent EPA regulations will impact more than just the coal industry.  As ACCCE President and CEO Mike Duncan said:

“The Partnership demonstrates this isn’t an issue that only affects coal-based industries but rather one that threatens American jobs, our manufacturing and agricultural base and our broader economy.”

The Partnership will work inside the beltway and across the country to increase awareness about EPA’s dangerous regulatory overreach and empower Americans to continue to demand access to affordable, reliable energy.

“Coming together as a unified coalition, the Partnership will empower and educate stakeholders to take action to stop EPA from putting regulations in place that will make America a more expensive place not only to live but to do business.”

You can help us push back against EPA overreach.  Sign our letter to EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy and tell her we need to preserve affordable, reliable energy for American families and businesses.
