(WASHINGTON, DC) – Today, President Barack Obama announced the final version of America’s Clean Power Plan. Following the announcement, Mayor Muriel Bowser released the statement:

“I applaud President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency for their continued commitment to fight climate change – an issue so critical to the future of our planet and public health. The District will continue to take aggressive action to reduce carbon pollution, invest in renewable energy and provide green jobs that will create more pathways to the middle class. As a local government, we are taking aggressive action to ensure Washington, DC remains a leader in reducing carbon pollution through green building deployment, energy and water efficiency efforts, and renewable energy development.  We look forward to working with President Obama and thank him for his continued vision and leadership.”
