Washington, D.C. – February 11, 2016 – (RealEstateRama) — U.S. Representative Bill Flores (R-Texas) released the following statement regarding the U.S. Supreme Court issuing a stay on the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan:
“Last December, Congress made it clear that it would not stand for the EPA’s backdoor rule to impose cap and trade through executive branch overreach. Now, the Supreme Court has joined with Congress to halt implementation of this part of Obama’s radical environmental agenda. The court’s stay protects hardworking American families from increased energy costs and the negative impacts it would have on our economy as the rule undergoes full judicial review. The action of the Supreme Court mirrors actions taken by federal courts across the country to stop other parts of the president’s attempts to ignore Congress and the Constitution. The president’s unilateral regulatory overreach will not go unchecked and it is time for him to get the message that circumventing Congress to impose his radical climate agenda will not be tolerated. “
Congressman Bill Flores represents the 17th District of Texas and is an entrepreneur, former energy executive, Certified Public Accountant (CPA), Chairman of the Republican Study Committee (RSC) and member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
