Mayor Coleman’s Statement Regarding President’s Executive Order to Roll Back the Clean Power Plan

Mayor Chris Coleman today (March 28, 2017) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s Executive Order to roll back the Clean Power Plan and other climate and environmental policies:

“Hundreds of cities around the world are already being impacted by climate change, including Saint Paul,” said Mayor Coleman. “The President may think that rolling back these regulations is pro-jobs, but he is gravely mistaken. Clean energy jobs are one of the fastest growing sectors in the country. It is imperative that we continue to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, make our communities more resilient and work to grow our economy with clean renewable energy jobs – as we have been doing here in Saint Paul for over a decade.”
