Environment - "How Much Each State Has to Cut Carbon Emissions Under New EPA Regulations"

Governing has a good graphic in this June 4 article re "How Much Each State Has to Cut Carbon Emissions Under New EPA Regulations," and background in this June 2 article titled "EPA Rule Requires Major Carbon Reductions from States."

Gannett's Maureen Groppe wrote June 2 in an article titled "http://www.governing.com/topics/energy-env/gov-epa-rule-requires-major-carbon-reductions-from-states.html."

And Andrew Restuccia of Politico reported yesterday, June 4 in this article headed "Some states already lashing at climate rule." Kentucky is featured, Indiana isn't mentioned.

According to the Governing graphic mentioned in the first paragraph of this post, which "shows the percentage of carbon dioxide (from 2012 levels) each state will have to reduce from its power utilities," Indiana needs a 20.4% reduction and Kentucky, 18.3%. See also this EPA map and state-by-state explanation.
