Attorney General Morrisey & Coalition Files Response To EPA in U.S. Supreme Court

Updated 3 years ago by WV Attorney General Patrick Morrisey
CHARLESTON — West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton led 29 states and state agencies in responding to the Environmental Protection Agency’s arguments on their illegal Power Plan at the U.S. Supreme Court.

On Jan. 26, the state coalition asked Chief Justice John Roberts for a stay of the Power Plan. The next day, the chief justice ordered EPA to respond to the states’ arguments, which EPA did on Feb. 4.
“Today’s filing underscores why many thousands of hours will be wasted and millions of dollars needlessly spent by the states without a stay,” Attorney General Morrisey said. “We believe such spending, as well as the loss of jobs, would be unnecessary as we remain confident that EPA has exceeded its legal authority by attempting to transform itself from an environmental regulator into a central energy authority.”
