Capito statement on federal court ruling in West Virginia vs. EPA

Posted:

(NEWS RELEASE)

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.) today issued the following statement regarding the decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit in West Virginia vs. EPA:

“While I am disappointed with the court's decision today, I remain confident in the merits of this case and strongly believe that the court will ultimately strike down this administration's unprecedented power grab. As the state of West Virginia continues to pursue all available legal options, I am working diligently with my colleagues in the Senate to garner support for the ARENA Act, the principal legislative vehicle to roll back the misguided ‘Clean Power Plan.' Today's ruling further underscores the need for this commonsense legislation, which will provide affordable, reliable energy and protect the jobs our vital energy sector supports.”
