- NMA Statement on Supreme Court Ruling in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency
June 30, 2022
WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Mining Association (NMA) issued the following statement today applauding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency.
We are pleased to see the Court confirm that there are limits to the authority that administrative agencies have to unilaterally issue transformative rules, particularly those that impose deep and uneven economic impacts on every state and industry across the country. While many would have liked to label this as a case about climate, it is not; it is a case about the authority of government agencies and the economic impacts to the states and all Americans when that authority is abused. Climate change is real and must be addressed, but not by running roughshod over the boundaries established around delegated powers.
