On Tuesday, August 21, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled against the EPA, stating that the agency exceeded its authority with the Cross State Air Pollution Rule.

"The National Economic Research Associates' recent study on the rule determined that it would increase the average electricity bill by 11.5 percent. Another study determined the rule would cost energy consumers a combined $130 billion, or $400 for every person in the U.S. The EPA should not be promoting a partisan agenda to do away with fossil fuel energy. Rather, it should be implementing policy Congress has approved in a bipartisan fashion," U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., said. "This way, energy prices won't increase dramatically for American consumers and American jobs won't be lost. Earlier this year, I supported a resolution of disapproval introduced by Senator Rand Paul that would have prevented this rule from being implemented, so I'm pleased with the court's decision."
