WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Clay Higgins (R-LA) issued the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) overstepped its regulatory authority under the Clean Air Act.
“The EPA’s actions were an abuse of authority that unjustly penalized American industry and injured domestic energy production. Alphabet agencies of our federal government, like the EPA, are out of control. Today’s decision is a step in the right direction. The Supreme Court rightfully confirmed that the federal bureaucracy does not have unlimited authority to sidestep Congress and dictate policy to the American people. My office will continue to fight against overreach from unelected DC bureaucrats, and we will not stop working to unleash American energy production.”
