Attorney General Paxton Statement on DC Circuit Power Plan Decision

Thursday, January 21, 2016 – Austin, Texas

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today released the following statement in response to a decision from the DC Circuit denying the state’s petition to stay the EPA’s Power Plan:

“Regardless of the court’s ruling today, the Obama Administration’s Power Plan not only remains bad policy but is also still unlawful. This ill-advised example of federal overreach will kill jobs, result in higher electric bills and create a significantly less reliable electric grid for all consumers. Alongside West Virginia, we will continue leading a 25-state coalition challenging the EPA’s rule wherever the case takes us.”
