Statement by Gov. Rick Perry on Court Order to Stay Cross State Air Pollution Rule

Friday, December 30, 2011  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry today issued the following statement regarding the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals' decision to grant Texas' request for a stay to the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Cross State Air Pollution Rule (CSAPR):

"Today’s court decision to stay the implementation of the CSAPR is a preliminary step in the right direction to end the job-killing mandates passed down by the Obama Administration and the unelected bureaucrats at the EPA. The court was right to stay this highly flawed, job-killing rule that was based on inaccurate and incomplete information.  Texas will now have a chance to discuss the devastating impact that this rule will have on our state's economy and electric reliability – an opportunity that we were not given by the Obama Administration’s out of control EPA when they adopted the rule."
