In recent articles published in the Denver Post and Co Springs Gazette, CMA stressed the importance of considering ALL consequences (including those to rural Colorado) that the Governor’s Executive Order to cut carbon emissions will have in our state.
CMA was quoted in both papers below.
Colorado Mining Association president-elect Stan Dempsey said current policies discouraging coal production are hurting rural Coloradans.
“We’re looking at this and have sent it to our members, looking at the impact it would have on clean, abundant Colorado coal as well as what impact it would have on rates,” Dempsey said. “What is the policy goal here?”
Co Springs Gazette: “We’re looking at it in terms of the impact such an executive order would have on the future of Colorado’s local communities … how it would affect the Colorado coal industry and impacts on electric rates for all Coloradans,” Dempsey said.
