Texas, US

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'

Supreme Court of the United States

House Speaker John Boehner on Supreme Court decision on EPA interpretation: 'We can't erase the damage that the EPA has already caused by shutting down power plants and putting thousands of Americans out of work, but we can take action to protect the jobs and energy that are still at risk under this administration. The Supreme Court's decision today validates actions the House has taken to rein in the EPA, including a measure that would force bureaucrats in Washington to account for the impact of the rules they hand down'
