Statement from Senate President Bill Cole Regarding U.S. Supreme Court's Decision on Clean Power Plan

CHARLESTON -- Senate President Bill Cole, R-Mercer, issued the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision to prevent the Environmental Protection Agency from implementing its Clean Power Plan while legal challenges move forward:

The United States Supreme Court decision that puts a stay on the implementation of EPA's Clean Power Plan is a huge victory for West Virginia against the Obama Administration's blatant federal overreach. Attorney General Patrick Morrisey and his team should be commended for their bold leadership in this lawsuit, and their diligent work to defend our coal mining communities against this President's patently illegal actions. My hope is that this will draw a line in the sand and tell Washington bureaucrats that they do not know what is best for our state and its energy industry.
