Senator Hatch Applauds Supreme Court’s Stay of EPA ‘Clean Power Plan’

Responding to the Supreme Court’s issuance of a stay on the EPA’s heavy-handed regulations on coal-fired power plants, Senator Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the senior Republican in the United States Senate, applauded the decision.

‎This administration’s continuous attempts to circumvent Congress by unilaterally waging a war on coal production and electrical generation hurts all Americans, especially Utahns, by destroying jobs and hiking energy prices. I applaud the Supreme Court’s decision to halt this onerous, unlawful, and costly EPA regulation and will continue to work with my colleagues in Congress to rein in the out-of-control executive branch.”
