Bishop: President Obama’s Unilateral Anti-Energy Agenda Will Ultimately be Gutted by the Courts


WASHINGTON, D.C., February 10, 2016 -

Yesterday, the Supreme Court stayed the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan in a 5-4 decision. Chairman Bishop (R-UT) issued the following statement:

“Much of the President’s unilateral agenda, including efforts to stomp out coal without going through Congress, will ultimately be gutted by the courts.  

“This ruling is one small win for impoverished coal communities and all Americans who rely on affordable energy. It’s a small win for the rule of law. It’s even a small win for the manatees.  

“President Obama has never really cared for the rule of law, and he’s really never quite understood the concept of affordable energy. As a result, his plan to redesign the American economy to run on wind and solar before he leaves office will remain a problem for the White House staff tasked with implementation.”
