–Koster says Missouri will continue to stand up to EPA–

Jefferson City, Mo. – Today the United States Supreme Court ruled in favor of Missouri and 22 other states that sued the Environmental Protection Agency for failing to consider the cost to power plants when deciding whether to regulate emissions.  Attorney General Chris Koster today issued the following statement on the ruling:

 

“There is a growing public perception that the EPA is acting without accountability when making decisions that adversely impact our state’s economy,” Koster said. “This case is a good example of that perception being true – where EPA’s remedy, by its own assessment, would cost up to 2,400 times more than any benefit it might provide.  Missouri will continue to hold the EPA accountable and protect Missouri’s growing economy.”
