Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott issued the following statement regarding today’s U.S. Supreme Court oral argument concerning the State of Texas’ challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency’s unlawful cross-state air pollution rule:

“The Obama Administration is determined to advance its liberal agenda despite the fact that the EPA’s cross-state air pollution rule will jeopardize the reliability of the Texas electrical grid, threaten the jobs of hard-working Texans, and burden Texas families with higher electricity prices. Just as the D.C. Circuit Court did on three different occasions, the U.S. Supreme Court should reject the lawless approach advanced by the unelected bureaucrats at the EPA. I will continue to fight the Obama Administration’s runaway EPA and will do all that I can to prevent unnecessary and unlawful federal regulations from getting in the way of Texas’ economic success.”
