Democrat State Representative Pam Snyder representing Pennsylvania’s 50th district is the author of House Bill 2354, called the Pennsylvania Greenhouse Gas Regulation Implementation Act, which was signed by into law by Gov. Tom Corbett on October 22, 2014. This important piece of legislation was developed in response to the Obama administration proposed a 30 percent cut in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions below 2005 levels by 2030 from power plants.
Representative Snyder wanted to ensure that the people of the state of Pennsylvania had a voice in shaping the new greenhouse gas regulations that could prove so costly to the state.
“[M]y legislation guarantees Pennsylvania will have a State plan – with direct input from the elected members of the General Assembly – and that the plan will be built on a least-cost basis with an additional focus on electric reliability. This pro-consumer approach balances all of Pennsylvania’s interests,”
