Attorney General Kamala D. Harris Issues Statement on U.S. Supreme Court Stay on President’s Clean Power Plan

SACRAMENTO – Attorney General Kamala D. Harris today released a statement following the U.S. Supreme Court’s order granting a stay of President Obama’s America’s Clean Power Plan, which would limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by fossil fuel-fired power plants. 

“I am extremely disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision today to block President Obama’s Clean Power Plan,” said Attorney General Harris. “The Court’s decision, and the special interests working to undermine this plan, threatens our environment, public health and economy.”

In November 2015, Attorney General Harris joined 17 states, the District of Columbia, and several major cities to intervene in lawsuits filed in opposition to President Obama’s Clean Power Plan and New Source Standards. 

Attorney General Harris has aggressively fought to protect AB 32, California’s Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, which has served as a global model for reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. The Attorney General’s office has also defended challenges to California’s Cap-and-Trade auctions and its precedent-setting Low Carbon Fuels Standard.
