ON-Lion Letter

In February, the U.S. Supreme Court suspended the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) so-called Clean Power Plan, barring it from taking effect while the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit considers the underlying merits of consolidated challenges to it.  The Supreme Court granted a stay requested by several dozen states and industry groups.

The Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) in Washington, D.C., is a petitioner in one of the lawsuits challenging the EPA plan.  Substantially supported by Milwaukee's Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, CEI is joined by several state policy organizations and seven individuals in the suit.

"In a way," CEI general counsel Sam Kazman said, "EPA's Clean Power Plan had put fossil fuel companies on death row and today the U.S. Supreme Court granted them a stay of execution.  This is great news, not just for these businesses and their employees, but also everyone who depends on affordable energy."
