A Bipartisan Effort to Protect Jobs and Keep Prices Low

Posted by Lisa Camooso Miller at 2:13 pm, June 19, 2013

These days, finding an issue where Republicans and Democrats agree is no easy task, but yesterday a bipartisan group of state Attorneys General joined together to call on the administration to protect American jobs and keep our energy costs low.

What brought the AGs from 21 states and two parties together?

Certain states and Washington D.C. are working in conjunction with environmental groups to pressure the EPA into issuing rushed regulations as part of a court settlement rather than through an open and deliberative process.

Criticizing the “sue and settle” tactic, the 21 AGs who signed the letter wrote: “Appropriate process should not be subjugated, and effective policy making cannot be forced to fruition, by threatening litigation.”

These 21 Attorneys General just want to see energy policy made correctly, and we don’t think that’s too much to ask of the administration:
