SCOTUS rejects radical climate agenda, sides with states

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Supreme Court today ruled in favor of the states, including Georgia, in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), determining that the Obama Administration’s sweeping environmental restrictions violated executive authority.

Rep. Earl L. “Buddy” Carter (R-GA) signed a “friend of the court” brief in December advocating for this ruling.

“The balance of powers has been restored today,”
said Carter. “Republicans since the Obama Administration have been sounding the alarm on the executive branch’s overreaching climate proposals, which sidestep congressional authority while pushing an unsustainable ‘rush-to-green’ agenda. Like Justice Roberts said is his opinion today, moving away from coal is a ‘solution to the crisis of the day,’ but will not meet the demands of tomorrow.”
