Dr. Bucshon Comments on Supreme Court’s EPA Ruling
(WASHINGTON, DC) – On Monday, Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D., a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, released the following statement in reaction to the Supreme Court’s Michigan v. EPA ruling requiring the EPA to consider the costs of the regulations it imposes on American families and energy producers:
“The President and his EPA will stop at nothing to implement their ideologically driven regulatory agenda, regardless of the consequences,” said Bucshon. “The EPA disregarded the economic harm – the potential job loss and increase in energy costs for families and businesses – caused by this rule. As I’ve always said, any regulations coming from the EPA should carefully consider the balance between economic and environmental concerns. Although we’ve unfortunately already seen coal-fired power plants close, I’m happy the Supreme Court put an end to this regulatory overreach. This decision is a win for Indiana and hard-working Hoosier families.”
Congressman Larry Bucshon, M.D. is a physician and Republican member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee serving his third term representing Indiana's 8th Congressional district.
