(Cheyenne, Wyo.) — Governor Matt Mead announced last night that he is extremely pleased that the U.S. Supreme Court granted a stay
of the Environmental
Protection Agency’s Clean Power Plan.
Wyoming joined West Virginia and numerous other states in seeking a stay
from the Court. The Court ruled 5-4 today to impose a stay.
“This is a big win for Wyoming and the nation,” said Mead. “It puts on hold
this very bad policy based on a deeply flawed process while the legal
issues are being addressed. I couldn’t be happier.”
The governor also reiterated his support for solutions to make energy
cleaner with technology instead of overreaching regulation.
“Wyoming will continue to lead in improving energy technology,” Mead added.
“Projects such as the Integrated Test Center are vital to meeting our
country’s current and future energy needs and the federal government should
get on board.”
