National Mining Association (NMA) President and CEO Hal Quinn remarked on today’s arguments before the D.C. Circuit Court challenging the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Clean Power Plan:
“Few regulatory issues before the D.C. Circuit carry such far-reaching economic consequences as the Clean Power Plan that was forcefully challenged today by 28 states and a variety of industries and organizations.
“The Court heard compelling arguments for drawing a line against a federal agency that, lacking clear legal authority or congressional consent, nevertheless insists on imposing a reckless regulation certain to burden households with higher energy costs and add to the loss of good jobs, yet achieve virtually nothing of measurable environmental significance.”
