Policy & Legislation
When a lack of common sense has a real impact on the precious dollars and cents of electricity consumers, it's time to take a stand. That's why we're calling on Keep Electricity Affordable supporters to send a strong message to the Environmental Protection Agency: Enough is enough. Together we can make sure that consumers' voices are heard.

The article that follows is from a publication of the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM). It underscores the importance of affordable power to the nation's manufacturing base.
Now is the time to contact policymakers in support of H.R. 2218 to ensure an effective, sensible and science-based approach to regulating the byproducts of electricity generation.
