Count on the Courts

Posted by Laura Sheehan at 12:25 pm, December 10, 2013

Today, the U.S. Supreme Court and the D.C. Circuit Court are hearing testimony about two of the EPA’s most controversial rules – the Cross-State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR) and Utility MACT.

We’re glad to see the Courts are taking on the overreaching and overzealous EPA rulemaking that’s crippling the nation’s coal fueled electric sector and threatening our economy.

Now we can only hope the court will do the right thing and strike these rules down once and for all.

The Supreme Court will be reviewing one aspect of the EPA’s regulations for greenhouse gas emissions and the D.C. Circuit Court will review the EPA’s mercury emissions rule – a rule that has already resulted in the planned closure of hundreds of coal-fueled power generating units in the United States.

We’re hopeful that the Courts will do the right thing and strike down these harmful rules, but regardless of the outcome of these cases, we’ll continue to fight to protect the hard-working men and women of this country who get up everyday to ensure that we all have affordable, reliable energy.

You can be a part of our fight. Visit and sign our letter to the EPA. Tell them you support jobs, not politically motivated, harmful regulations.
