Indiana rails against President Obama’s power plant requirement

Indiana’s republican Governor isn’t too thrilled about President Barack Obama’s new plan plan to cut carbon emissions nationwide 32 percent by 2030. The President says the Clean Energy Plan he announced Monday is a bold step to slow climate change, but opponents like Indiana Governor Mike Pence says it’s federal overreach that will raise prices for electricity consumers. As a result, Pence is joining about a dozen other states in legally challenging Obama’s power plant requirements in court. WBEZ’s Northwest Indiana Bureau reporter Michael Puente joins us.
