WASHINGTON, D.C.—Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) issued the following statement today after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled against costly, job-killing regulation by President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA):

“The Supreme Court today issued a major rebuke of the Obama Administration’s harmful agenda of costly, radical regulations that kill American jobs, hurt our economy, and raise prices for hard-working families,” Scalise said. “The House has consistently acted to protect families from the EPA’s lawless overreach—including last week when we passed the Ratepayer Protection Act. Today’s ruling vindicates the House’s actions, and should serve as a wakeup call to President Obama’s radical EPA that it’s time for them drop their job-killing, price-hiking agenda—including their disastrous global warming proposal—that would impose unnecessary economic hardship on hard-working families and businesses across America.”
