PA Chamber Statement on Gov. Shapiro’s New Energy Proposals

Today, Pennsylvania Chamber of Business and Industry President and CEO Luke Bernstein released the following statement in response to Gov. Josh Shapiro’s announcement of two new energy programs for Pennsylvania, the Pennsylvania Climate Emissions Reduction Act (PACER) and the Pennsylvania Reliable Energy Sustainability Standard (PRESS):

“We all share the goals of protecting our environment and growing our economy – and, one does not have to come at the expense of the other. Pennsylvania is a global leader in energy production and reducing emissions, and policies going forward should build on this progress. We await details on the governor’s proposals, which raise significant questions and concerns about the impacts on our residents, businesses, the environment, and our economy. We encourage the governor to work in a collaborative way with additional stakeholders and the legislature to address important questions pertaining to the short- and long-term impacts of these policies and develop the best plan for Pennsylvania.
