AEA Applauds Congress for Passing Stream Rule CRA Resolution
WASHINGTON – The American Energy Alliance (AEA) applauds Congress for passing a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution to repeal the previous administration’s costly Stream Protection Rule. AEA President Thomas Pyle issued the following statement:
“We applaud Congress for taking swift action to halt this costly and duplicative regulation. This midnight regulation from the Obama administration was a direct attack on responsible coal production and would have threatened tens of thousands of jobs, while making energy more expensive for American families. This is an important step in resetting years of bad policy and ensuring that Americans continue to benefit from one of our most abundant, affordable, and reliable sources of energy. We look forward to President Trump signing the resolution and officially putting an end to this senseless regulation.”
AEA is including both the Senate and House votes in its American Energy Scorecard.
