E&E Legal joined CEI and other free-market organizations on a May 30, 2o24, letter to Congress supporting a CRA resolution of disapproval on the EPA Power Plant Rule.  The letter stated in part:

The bottom line is that, for coal powerplants, 90-percent carbon capture is not an “adequately demonstrated” “best system of emission reduction” (BSER), taking “cost” and “energy requirements” into account, and thus is not a lawful basis for setting emission standards under Section 111 of the Clean Air Act (CAA).

CEI spearheaded another letter to the Hill on June 3, which E&E Legal signed onto, that addressed the Prove It Act.  The letter expressed the coalition’s vehement opposition to the Act, and it said, in part:

Many of the bill supporters expressly admit that the legislation would be used to develop carbon taxes of some kind. Senator Chris Coons (D-DE), a lead sponsor and a past sponsor of domestic carbon tax legislation has said the PROVE IT Act will inform the “process for imposing tariffs on countries that don’t have any transparency around their emissions” as “part of any border carbon adjustment mechanism.” The European Union (EU) has created the first and only carbon border adjustment mechanism and it includes both a carbon tax on imports and a domestic carbon pricing scheme.
