Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr is pushing back on what he calls a “far-reaching attempt by the Biden administration to regulate what it cannot legislate.” Late last week, Carr joined a coalition of 21 states opposing the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) proposed new rule on existing coal, natural gas, and oil-fired power plants.

According to Carr, the proposal by the Biden Administration attempts to regulate into closure those plants under the Clean Air Act by imposing more stringent emissions standards. He goes on to say that the plan ignores last year’s rebuke from the U.S. Supreme Court in West Virginia v. EPA, which warned that the EPA should not use a narrow regulatory provision to force coal-fired power plants into retirement en masse.
