Washington, D.C. – June 25, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema voted in favor of the bipartisan Ratepayer Protection Act (H.R. 2042) to protect Arizona families from increasing electricity costs.
“Arizonans work hard every day to pay their bills and put food on the table, and Washington’s unreasonable regulations shouldn’t stand in their way,” said Congresswoman Sinema. “The EPA’s proposed rule would hit Arizona harder than almost any other state, increasing electricity rates and threatening reliability across our state. Today’s reasonable bipartisan legislation gives Arizona control over our electricity system, protects jobs, and keeps electric bills affordable for businesses and hard-working Arizona families.”
The Ratepayer Protection Act extends the compliance period for states to implement carbon dioxide reduction plans and allows states to opt out of implementing federal emission reduction plans if the plans raises electricity prices or threatens the reliability of the state’s electricity system.
