Proposals from the Obama Administration, including the new carbon pollution proposal from the EPA, aim to slow climate change.

Clean Air + Clean Energy = Good Business (Normal, IL) Focus MeetingMonday, July 28, 2014 (5:30 PM - 8:00 PM Pacific)
The nation’s first-ever carbon pollution limits on power plants will finally help our country take real action against climate change and the economic, health and environmental problems that come with it. But the new carbon standards, which were released in June, also will help create economic growth and new opportunities for clean energy companies and a wide range of other businesses as well. On July 28, please join other Illinois business leaders at an informal, invitation-only discussion about how you can help shape a future that’s bright for our state’s economy and environment.
