Alexander Says Supreme Court Right to Block Obama Clean Power Plan

Posted on February 9, 2016

WASHINGTON, Feb. 9, 2016 – U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement after the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan until legal challenges to the law are resolved.

“The Supreme Court was right to stop implementation of the Obama administration’s arbitrary energy plan that favors unreliable wind power over more reliable clean sources of energy like nuclear power. The best path to a clean energy future is to end wasteful subsidies for unreliable wind power and other mature technologies and instead unleash energy innovation through doubling funding for basic energy research and expand nuclear power.”
