Texas challenges EPA greenhouse gas regulations
The State of Texas has filed its opening brief challenging the EPA's greenhouse gas rules.
The State of Texas last week filed its opening brief challenging the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's greenhouse gas regulations in the state.
Texas Attorney General Greg Abbot said in a Feb. 9 statement that the “unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats at the EPA” are putting Texas jobs in danger by not allowing the state to manage its own air emissions program.
“These expensive mandates do little to make our air safer or to control the global warming the EPA insists is threatening our country, while doing great damage to our energy independence and economic recovery,” Abbott said in a statement.
Texas is in the process of taking legal action against the EPA for regulating greenhouse gases in the state.
