Robert Hurt votes for House resolution criticizing EPA Clean Power Plan

Robert_HurtCongressman Robert Hurt (R-Virginia) released the following statement after voting in favor of S.J. Resolution 23 and S.J. Resolution 24, which express congressional disapproval of portions of the President’s Clean Power Plan.

“Every day, burdensome Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules and regulations hinder job growth and continue to make life more difficult for Fifth District Virginians. The Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan is a textbook example of this harmful bureaucratic overreach.  This Washington-engineered plan comes with enormous costs to states and American consumers and will unduly increase the cost of energy and negatively affect our struggling economy.  States have long been responsible for the oversight of electric utilities and the protection of American consumers from increased energy costs, and, once again, the EPA is overstepping its bounds and furthering its war on coal.  I was proud to support these resolutions– which passed the Senate earlier this month– expressing congressional disapproval of these misguided EPA rules.  It is my hope that President Obama will listen to the American people and put an end to this bureaucratic overreach that will only increase energy costs and further depress job growth across our country.”
