Pompeo Lauds DC Circuit Court’s Ruling Against EPA’s CSAPR Rule
“I am pleased the Court identified the EPA as exactly what it is—an overreaching and out-of-control bureaucracy, intent on forcing President Obama’s green agenda upon Americans.”
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The CSAPR rule, as it was written, would drastically hike energy costs for multiple states including Kansas.
Congressman Mike Pompeo (KS-04), a member of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce and a sponsor of a House bill to halt the rule, issued the following statement:
“Today’s DC Circuit Court ruling is a huge victory for Kansas, as well as other states, which were being unfairly forced into complying with this rule. The CSAPR rule would have dramatically increased electricity prices and could have led to blackouts. This would have been devastating to every Kansas consumer and business. I am pleased the Court identified the EPA for exactly what it is—an overreaching and out-of-control bureaucracy, intent on forcing President Obama’s green agenda upon Americans. Kansas was unfairly impacted by this rule without any recourse and EPA was rightfully reprimanded by the court today, as a result.
“Today’s court ruling against the EPA’s CSAPR rule represents a victory, however we need to continue to be vigilant and protect access to affordable domestic energy.” stated Pompeo.
