The Partnership for Affordable Clean Energy is pleased to announce that Executive Director Lance Brown has been accepted as a contributor to the National Journal, one of the nation’s foremost sources of political and public policy news. Brown’s contributions will appear in the National Journal’s Energy and Environment Section alongside other national voices on energy policy.

“This latest development with the National Journal is a testament to PACE’s clear and consistent message that energy policy must be affordable, fair, and realistic,” said Brown. “We recognize that without our strong membership and grassroots support, this breakthrough would not have been possible. We thank all of those fighting alongside us.”

PACE’s first contribution was published yesterday and focused on EPA’s carbon rules.
EPA Regulation Preemption A Necessity

Wrote Brown,

It is important that we recognize the necessity and urgency to delay or stop implementation of these rules, which will impact all sectors of the economy and cause unintended consequences beyond the power industry. Our energy future is a Rorschach Test at which some policy makers look and see only more regulation and restraint. The truth is we can have a power generation system that is clean, reliable, and affordable if we simply choose a path that liberates – not limits – our possibilities.
