September

The HonorableBarack ObamaPresident
of
the
United
States
The
White
House
1600
Pennsylvania
Avenue,
N'W
Washington,
D.C.
20500DearPresident
Obama:
Severalweeks
ago,
you
orderedthe
Environmental
Protection
Agency(EPA)to
delay
implementationof
the
NationalAmbient
Air
Quality
standards
for
ozone.
I write
to
you
todayto
urg.
yo,
to
use
that
same
authority
toprevent or,
at
least,delay
EPA's
adoption
of
the
CrossStáte
Air
Pollution
Rules
(CSAPR).
I
have
challengedotherrulesthat
EPA
has
proposed
or
adopted
in
thepast,
but
these
rules
are
different.
The
implementationof
CSAPR
will
happen
quiôtty
and
will
have
an
immediate
and
devastating
effect
on
Texas
jobs,
oureconomy,
and
our
ability
to
supplythe
electricityour
citizens,schools
and
employers
need.
Texashas
filed
a
petition
for
reconsideration
andstay
of
these
rules
because
EPA
has
failed
to
provide
therequired
notice
and
follow
requiredprocedures, the
implementationtimeline
is
impossible
tomeet,
and
therules
will
have
anadverse
effect
on
the
reliability
of ourelectricitygrid
and
on
our economy.EPAfailed to
consider
these
effectsbefore
it
finalized
CSAPR.
On
September
1,
the
Electric
Reliability
Councilof
Texas
(ERCOT)
released
its
assessment
of
theimþact thatCSAPR
wilt
haveon
the
reliability
ofits electric
grid.
ERCOT
estimates
that
implementationof
these
rules
will
result
in
the
loss
of
1,200
to
1,400
megawatts
of
generation
duiing
peak months
and
up to
6,000megawatts
in
non-peak
months.
In
the
future,
this
will
result
in
significant
reliability
challenges.AsERCOT
explained,"hadthisincrementalreduction
been
in
plaie
in
2071,
ERCOT would
have
experienced
rotating
outages
during
days
inAugust."
And while
ERCOT's
assessmentdoes
not
analyzethe
rules'
impact
on
job
losses,
Luminant,
thestate'slargest
ownerof
generation,
announced
on September
12 that
compliance
with
CSAPR
will
result in
the
loss
of
at
least 500Luminant
jobsin Texas.
Finally,
informationfrom
Southwest
Public
ServiceCompany,
an
Xcel
Energy operatingcompanythat
serves
customersinTexas
and
New
Mexico,
indicates thatcompliance
with
these
rules
could
cause
electricity
prices
to
rise 20percent
across
its
service
territory
