Supreme Court tells EPA, “Not this time”

It seems like every time we read or hear a news story regarding the Environmental Protection Agency, it’s about ridiculously strict regulations that put people out of jobs, companies out of business and entire communities in jeopardy.

The EPA’s War on Coal, which unfairly targets one of our country’s most abundant resources, has destroyed the lives of many hard-working Americans. For years, the EPA has been getting away with forcing power plants to spend huge chunks of money to limit their emissions in order to meet very difficult EPA standards.

That’s why I take great pleasure in letting you know about this important decision.

After leaders from 21 states and a number of industry groups led a challenge against the EPA, the U.S. Supreme Court decided in a 5-4 vote that the EPA “unreasonably” failed to consider the cost of their regulations. It was a big victory for coal-powered and oil-powered plants.

Justice Antonin Scalia summed it up very nicely when he wrote that it is not appropriate to impose billions of dollars of economic costs in return for a few dollars in health or environmental benefits. The court ruling added that, “EPA must consider cost – including cost of compliance – before deciding whether regulation is appropriate and necessary.

Do you think this Supreme Court ruling will convince lower courts to make these same kinds of judgments in the future? Or are we doomed to eventually lose to the EPA and the liberals who run it? I’d love to hear your thoughts about it.
