Washington, D.C. – The following is a statement from West Virginia Attorney General and Republican Attorneys General Association (RAGA) Chairman Patrick Morrisey:
"The Obama Power Plan was one of the most egregious, unlawful regulations issued in our lifetime. It killed jobs, raised the price of electricity for hard-working Americans and placed the reliability of the power grid at risk. Fortunately, Republican Attorneys General and a 27-state bipartisan coalition led the way in fighting against this power grab, obtaining an historic stay at the U.S. Supreme Court last February.
"We are deeply appreciative that President Trump is reaffirming his commitment to put an end to the Obama Power Plan. The President is keeping his promise to the American people and to coal miners--the workers who power this country and made it great."
