Energy-Producing States Coalition

Energy Summit

It’s time to chat about states’ rights, proper timing and best practices with carbon regulation.

That’s the message a large group of state environmental officials and electric industry representatives want to send to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

The Energy-Producing States Coalition is addressing the core issues via a letter to the White House’s Office of Management and Budget. North Dakota has a leading role in the coalition, with help from Basin Electric.
