Washington, DC: In response to the US Court of Appeals decision to grant the Trump administration’s request to stop work on a case concerning the Clean Power Plan, League of Conservation Voters issued the following statement from Legislative Representative, Sara Jordan:

“Today’s decision may make it easier for President Trump and Scott Pruitt to scrap the Clean Power Plan and allow unlimited carbon pollution to spew from power plants, fueling climate change and endangering the health of everyone in this country. However, it does nothing to change the fact that our government has an obligation to limit carbon pollution and fight climate change. The court may let President Trump and Scott Pruitt off the hook for their dangerous delay tactics, but we won’t.”
