General Landry Calls Decision a Victory for Louisiana
BATON ROUGE, LA - Attorney General Jeff Landry issued the following statement after the United States Supreme Court halted the Obama Administration's new power plant regulations:
"Our request for a stay of the EPA's Clean Power Plan rule was granted by the Supreme Court. I applaud the majority in their decision to halt one of the largest utility rate increases on low and middle class consumers in American history. Today is a victory for Louisiana, who would be on the hook for the billions it would cost to implement this rule. Today's decision prevents the EPA from forcing compliance on our State before we have the opportunity to challenge this invalid, expansive rule. I will continue to work with my fellow Attorneys General from across the country to ensure Louisiana workers, job creators, and consumers are not burdened by the EPA's overreach."
