Governor Pence Pleased by Supreme Court Decision to Halt Anti-coal EPA Rule
Start Date: 2/9/2016Start Time: 12:00 AM
End Date: 2/9/2016
Entry Description

Indianapolis – Governor Pence issued the following statement following the Supreme Court’s decision to halt the enforcement of the EPA’s Clean Power Plan while litigation against the rule continues.

“Hoosiers know that coal means jobs and low-cost energy for our state, and tonight’s Supreme Court decision to put President Obama’s carbon dioxide regulations on hold is a win for Indiana.  The Clean Power Plan exceeds the authority granted to the EPA under the Clean Air Act, and I am pleased that it will not be enforced while the lawsuit filed by Indiana and 28 other states and state agencies moves through the courts.  Hoosiers may be assured that our state will continue to use every legal means available to fight President Obama’s war on coal.”

Governor Pence announced on October 23, 2015 that Indiana would join a coalition of states in challenging the legality of the Clean Power Plan.
