Washington, D.C. – Today, Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-MO-02) released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court made the decision to temporarily halt the enforcement of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan:

“For a state like Missouri, which generates more than 80 percent of its electricity from coal and has some of the lowest rates in the country, President Obama’s EPA rule would take money away from our hardworking families and small businesses through radically higher electricity rates. Yesterday’s Supreme Court decision was a positive step, but I will work to build on this decision and won’t rest while this job-killing money grab still exists.”
