WASHINGTON, D.C.— House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) released the following statement regarding the Trump administration’s decision to repeal the Clean Power Plan:

“Just like so many of the Obama administration’s radical regulations, the Clean Power Plan rule was a Washington power grab that killed jobs and imposed higher costs on American families. I applaud the Trump administration’s decision to reverse this misguided rule so hard-working families get some financial relief and American energy producers once again have the ability to grow and create more jobs, putting our nation on the path to energy dominance while providing affordable energy prices for all Americans.”
