Robert Bradley CEO AND FOUNDER Institute of Energy Research. A proposal for the government to bail out aging coal and nuclear giants with billions in taxpayer dollars undermines an otherwise banner ﬁrst year for Trump’s America First Energy Plan.
Energy Secretary Rick Perry says that it is necessary to artiﬁcially sustain them to improve the “reliability and resiliency” of the power grid in times of black-outs, high demand and natural disasters. Bradley counters that the superior economics of new energy sources and technologies improve the reliability and resiliency of the grid with each passing day. He adds that subsidies are unnecessary and will distort an otherwise functioning market. In the meantime he suggests vastly less expensive alternatives such as investing in hardening transmission and pipeline infrastructure.

Steve Aden: PA Governor Tom Wolf has vetoed common sense protections for pain-capable unborn children
Steve Aden, Americans United for Life Chief Legal Ofﬁcer. the following statement: “Americans United for Life is disappointed to learn that Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf has vetoed common sense protections for pain-capable unborn children. Not only did this legislation provide protections for the unborn child who can feel pain, but it would also have protected mothers from the increased risks associated with later term abortions. Research shows that a woman seeking an abortion at 20 weeks—ﬁve months—is 35 times more likely to die from an abortion than she was in the ﬁrst trimester. This risk continues to increase exponentially as the pregnancy progresses, due to both the development and growth of the unborn child, as well as the physical changes a woman’s body undergoes in preparation for delivery. We urge the citizens of Pennsylvania and members of the legislature to continue to ﬁght for legislation that protects both mothers and their unborn children from the harms of abortion.”—Catherine Glenn Foster, President and CEO of AUL
