"The Obama Administration's Clean Power Plan stands on a solid legal foundation and we are confident that it will be upheld by the U.S. Court of Appeals District of Columbia Circuit. It not only represents the most aggressive action that our country has taken to combat climate change but also the cornerstone of our commitment to the global community reflected on the Paris Agreement."
"The Clean Power Plan has extensive support from businesses, state and local governments and the public, including the Latino community. It's implementation will help our country transition into clean energy and by helping fighting climate change, we will ensure the well-being of our families and future generations."
