Despite Surpeme Court slap-down, EPA chief says Court didn’t tell us to delay climate reg deadlines

-

 

Testifying before Congress, EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy says the Supreme Court did not tell the Agency it could not keep the Clean Power Plan’s original deadlines in the Court’s stay of the rule.

ADMINISTRATOR GINA MCCARTHY: “The Supreme Court did stay the rule. They did not speak to any tolling of the deadlines. This is a rule where the compliance is quite far off into the future, so that issue will clearly be decided either by the Supreme Court, or if they choose to give it to the lower court or to EPA to work through there are a variety of ways those issues get resolved, but it was not spoken to by the Supreme Court in its decision.”
