WMC Statement on President Obama's Climate Plan

Statement by Kurt R. Bauer, president/CEO of Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce (WMC), on President Obama’s climate change announcement.

“Nearly 65 percent of Wisconsin’s energy is generated by coal fired plants. The president’s plan will significantly increase electricity costs for every Wisconsin household and business. Wisconsin’s manufacturing sector – the state’s economic driver and biggest energy user – will be disproportionately harmed. As a result of this plan employers will eventually pay more for electricity, Wisconsin will be less competitive with other states and countries, and jobs will be lost.”
