FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 29, 2015) – “Today, as a result of a lawsuit filed by my office and 22 other states, the United States Supreme Court ruled that the EPA acted unreasonably when it failed to consider costs in developing a new regulation that would have required existing power plants to retrofit their systems at great expense to Kentucky ratepayers and businesses. These regulations would have raised utility rates and cost Kentucky jobs.
As Attorney General, I have consistently fought for the people of Kentucky against this EPA in its never-ending attempt to overreach and overregulate. I appreciate the Supreme Court’s consideration and affirmation of our position, and I’ll continue fighting against EPA rulemaking that harms Kentucky coal production and electricity rates.”
