Luminant CEO Testifies Before Texas State House Committee

spot_PwrTxLogoOn Thursday, Sept. 22, David Campbell joined state regulators and other industry executives in testifying before the Texas House State Affairs Committee, chaired by Rep. Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, on the EPA's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule.

This hearing, which followed a similar public meeting held by the state Senate Committee on Natural Resources on Sept. 13, focused on the severe mandates required by CSAPR and the importance of saving Texas jobs and protecting our state's electric reliability.

Campbell testified that Luminant is "fighting to preserve hundreds of jobs for our employees, to keep open facilities that are important to the local communities, and to preserve the reliability of the Texas electric system.
"We are not alone in our concern about this rule and its effects on Texas. Many elected officials from both sides of the aisle, community leaders, and consumer advocates have taken action to express their serious concerns. In these partisan times, this is one topic that has generated widespread agreement among Texas leaders.”
