Phoenix, AZ – August 6, 2015 – (RealEstateRama) — Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich today joined Attorneys General in 15 other states to request the EPA immediately stay Section 111(d) of the Obama administration’s finalized “Clean Power Plan.” A stay is a legal procedure that will ensure Arizonans will not be forced to suffer serious harm until the courts have had an opportunity to review the rule’s legality.
“The EPA doesn’t have the legal authority to issue these mandates,” said Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “A stay will help protect Arizonans from increased energy prices and will preserve jobs as the final rule is challenged in court.”
Attorney General Brnovich and 15 other Attorneys General believe the “Clean Power Plan” is fundamentally flawed and unlawful. The coalition is asking the EPA to take action on this stay request by 4 p.m. EST August 07, 2015.
Brnovich added, “The president is using the EPA to bypass Congress and to force these devastating regulations upon the states.”
Other states joining this application for stay include Alabama, Arkansas, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.
