U.S. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement tonight after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay on the EPA’s new and heavy-handed regulations on coal-fired power plants.

“Sadly it’s not surprising that the same Administration that brags about circumventing Congress with its pen and phone was rebuked today. The Obama era owns the record for executive overreach and has been struck down by the Supreme Court time after time. The EPA is not a super-legislature and this stay is an important step toward having the American people— not unelected bureaucrats— set energy policy.”
