A state-by-state breakdown of Obama's Clean Power Plan

E&E News' Power Plan Hub provided an in-depth review of state and legal action related to U.S. EPA's Clean Power Plan, which was released under President Obama in 2015. The plan would have cut carbon emissions 32 percent below 2005 levels by 2030, with a specific emissions target assigned to each state.

The Supreme Court halted implementation of the Clean Power Plan in February 2016. A year later, President Trump directed EPA to review the rule, and Administrator Scott Pruitt formally proposed repealing it in October 2017.
