Washington, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Rep. David B. McKinley, P.E. (R-WV) issued the following statement on the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to stop implementation of President Obama’s power plant rules until it considers legal challenges to the plan:
“President Obama’s regulations on coal-fired power plants represent a massive overreach that rests on shaky Constitutional ground. The Supreme Court’s decision today is a victory for West Virginia, coal mining families, and people everywhere who will face higher utility bills if this plan goes into effect.
“We will continue to fight Obama’s extreme climate agenda in the courts and in Congress and defend the important role coal plays in our economy.”
