WASHINGTON, D.C. – February 11, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) released the following statement in response to the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to halt enforcement of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan:
“Today’s decision by the Supreme Court acknowledges the massive flaws in President Obama’s extremist climate change agenda. Blocking the implementation of this economically disastrous regulation that will raise electricity prices for families in Kansas and kill jobs all across America is only the first step in making sure this administration’s draconian environmental policy does not go into effect. The Supreme Court is rightfully concerned that the Environmental Protection Agency has overstepped its legal authority. I look forward to the Court acknowledging what many of us have been saying: the Clean Power Plan is illegal.”
Pompeo is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, which has jurisdiction over the Environmental Protection Agency.
