Supreme Court Stands Up for U.S. Consumers

posted February 10, 2016

February 10, 2016 – Washington, D.C. – US Consumer Coalition (USCC) President Brian J. Wise issued the following statement on the Supreme Court’s decision to issue a stay on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) carbon rule. The rule is part of the Obama administration’s agenda to limit carbon emissions from power plants.

“We commend the Supreme Court for standing up for millions of American consumers. The EPA’s carbon rule is another example of regulatory overreach of dubious legality that puts low-income families at risk of paying higher energy costs. Families shouldn’t be put in a difficult position of choosing between paying for their electric bill or buying groceries in order to advance a political agenda.

“The Congress and states should continue to oppose EPA’s heavy-handed regulations and expose the negative impact the rules will have on millions of American families.”

The US Consumer Coalition (USCC) is a grassroots consumer advocacy organization working to protect and expand access to free-market goods and services.
