AFPM Reacts to U.S. Supreme Court's Decision to Hold EPA's Clean Power Plan

WASHINGTON, Feb. 10, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AFPM President Chet Thompson issued the following statement in response to the Supreme Court's decision on the Clean Power Plan:

"The Court's rare move confirms the legal vulnerability of EPA's controversial Clean Power Plan. The stay protects consumers from higher electricity costs and states from being irreparably harmed by being forced to implement a rule that exceeds EPA's statutory authority. We are confident that the D.C. Circuit will recognize the extreme extent to which this rule oversteps the bounds of EPA's authority and step in to protect consumers by overturning this rule."
