Lawmakers Say Congress Hasn’t Given EPA Power to Implement Climate Rule

Lawmakers in opposition to the Clean Power Plan told a federal court that Congress hasn’t given the EPA the authority to enact the rule. In an amicus brief that supports a lawsuit opposed to CPP, over 200 lawmakers contended that the EPA is overstepping its bounds with the Clean Power Plan and trying to implement a rule more wide-ranging than previous Congresses ever intended. The lawmakers, in their brief, repeated many of their long-held arguments against the Clean Power Plan, saying the EPA cannot regulate power plant emissions under the section of the law it is citing and that it has no power to impose the rule on states.
