Oklahoma Scores Key Victory against EPA Overreach at U.S. Supreme Court

Oklahoma Scores Key Victory against EPA Overreach at U.S. Supreme Court







Attorney General Scott Pruitt on Monday said Oklahoma and other states won a key victory at the U.S. Supreme Court in challenging the EPA’s attempt to expand its authority under the Clean Air Act.


“Today’s ruling by the Supreme Court is a major victory for Oklahoma and other states that challenged EPA overreach,” Attorney General Scott Pruitt said. “While the EPA serves an important role in protecting our environment, the agency continues its aggressive drive to expand its authority over the lives of Americans. In its ruling, the Supreme Court noted that even the EPA recognized these regulations would be an ‘unprecedented expansion of EPA authority that would have a profound effect on virtually every sector of the economy and touch every household in the land’ while still only proving to be ‘relatively ineffective at reducing greenhouse gas concentrations.’ In this case, the EPA clearly overstepped its authority under the Clean Air Act as part of the administration’s anti-fossil fuel agenda. In siding with Oklahoma, the Supreme Court has placed an important check on the EPA and preserved state authority under the Clean Air Act.”


Oklahoma and other states together challenged the EPA’s unprecedented move to make thousands of stationary sources such as schools, churches and shopping centers, comply with Clean Air Act regulations designed for existing power plants already regulated by the EPA. The lawsuit is Texas et al v. EPA.
