Statement by Gov. Perry on Cross-State Air Pollution Rule

Tuesday, August 21, 2012  •  Austin, Texas  •  Press Release

Gov. Rick Perry released the following statement on the U.S. Court of Appeals rejecting the Environmental Protection Agency's Cross-State Air Pollution Rule:

"Today's court decision is further proof of an out-of-control and out-of-line EPA. On the heels of our recent flexible air permitting program victory, today's ruling further dismantles the misguided agenda of President Obama's activist, overreaching EPA that has no regard for the impact of its imprudent policies on states' economies or Americans' checkbooks. Texas will continue to pursue common sense policies that balance the priorities of protecting the environment and allowing our industries to thrive."
