WEST VIRGINIA ATTORNEY GENERAL: Attorney General Morrisey Issues Statement on Lawsuit That Attacks West Virginia Coal

By Press release submission | Aug 19, 2019


West Virginia Attorney General issued the following announcement on Aug. 13.

West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey issued the following statement regarding a lawsuit against the Trump Administration’s Affordable Clean Energy rule (ACE).

“My colleagues on the other side of the aisle are dead wrong in their interpretation of the Clean Air Act. The CAA was not written to compel one type of energy producer to cross-subsidize another. Neither it nor the Constitution allow the EPA to serve as a central energy planning authority.

“West Virginia will fight this 22-state big government ‘power grab’ lawsuit and advance some of same arguments that helped our 27-state coalition obtain a stay of the so-called Clean Power Plan at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2016.

“Those filing lawsuit will ultimately fail at the Supreme Court.”
