Obama Orders Minnesota To Cut Emissions 41 Percent

June 2, 2014, 2:45 PM

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -

Minnesota is being asked to cut carbon emissions by roughly 41 percent over the next 15 years as part of a nationwide plan to reduce pollution from power plants.

President Barack Obama announced his plan Monday. The goal is to reduce carbon emissions nationwide 30 percent by 2030 - when compared with 2005 levels.

Some states will be allowed to emit more pollutants than others, but the overall reduction goal is 30 percent.

Minnesota is one state being asked to do more.

Officials with the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency, utilities and environmental groups were still reviewing Obama's plan Monday. But they say the state is already successful in reducing emissions and creating renewable energy, and is well-positioned going forward.
