Issues

  • Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP)

    The Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP) provides critical home heating and cooling help to millions of vulnerable American families.

  • New Source Review

    NRECA supports passage of legislation to provide regulatory certainty for power plants that are seeking to make improvements to increase efficiency and reduce emissions.

  • Protect Your RS Plan Pension Benefits

    We need Congress to pass S. 2526/H.R. 5282 “The Retirement Enhancement and Savings Act” which would save nearly $40 million for the 880 co-ops participating in NRECA’s RS Plan.

  • PURPA Reform

    The Public Utilities Regulatory Policies Act of 1978 (PURPA) reform is necessary to ensure this 40-year old statute more accurately reflects the current electricity market and helps rural electric cooperatives continue to provide affordable, reliable electricity.

  • Vegetation Management

    Electric cooperative efforts to maintain grid reliability and ensure public safety include keeping power line rights-of-way clear of hazardous trees and vegetation, even along lines that cross federal lands to provide affordable electricity to rural Americans.

  • Clean Power

    NRECA supports EPA’s proposal to rescind the Clean Power Plan (CPP), and strongly encourages EPA to move purposefully to propose and finalize a replacement 111(d) rule consistent with the section’s regulatory history.
