Washington, D.C. – February 18, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — Congressman Scott Tipton (CO-03) issued the following statement applauding the Supreme Court’s ruling to stay the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ‘Clean Power Plan’ until state lawsuits are heard.
“This is a victory for the hardworking families that dedicate their lives to producing affordable and reliable electricity for all Americans. While the President has done everything possible to pick winners and losers in American energy production and put these people out of work, the Supreme Court has stepped in to give states their day in court as they challenge the Administration’s overreach. For the time being, this stay protects jobs and communities like Craig and Delta from further hardship, and Americans struggling to make ends meet from a punitive spike in their utility bills.”
Tipton recently wrote an opinion column on the harmful impacts the EPA ‘Clean Power Plan’ would have on affordable energy and the communities that produce it. Read that column HERE.
