Texas Gov. Greg Abbott statement on Supreme Court EPA ruling: 'The Supreme Court rightly held that the EPA violated the law when it imposed a multi-billion-dollar regulation on power plants without considering whether the cost was justified. While today's decision is good news for Texas, the EPA continues to push an agenda with little regard for the price tag these regulations would impose on employers and ultimately, Texans. Texas will stand ready to continue our fight against an over-bearing federal government that stands in the way of economic prosperity'
