Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement after the Supreme Court temporarily blocked one of the key rules in President Obama’s regulatory war on coal. 

“There is a war being waged on energy and on coal in this country, but it’s not being waged from abroad, it’s coming from our own government. Affordable, reliable energy is critical for American jobs and economic growth, but the President would rather force his liberal climate agenda than protect the pockets of hardworking Americans.

"This Supreme Court ruling is a victory for the rule of law and the American people. We will continue our work to protect U.S. jobs and put an end to the EPA’s excessive regulations that are killing our coal industry and the livelihoods of hard-working miners and their families,” Blackburn said.
