NAM Files Clean Power Plan Stay in Supreme Court

Manufacturers Will Continue to Fight This Regulation in the Courts and Congress

Washington, D.C., January 27, 2016 – National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) Senior Vice President and General Counsel Linda Kelly issued the following statement after the NAM filed a stay motion to the U.S. Supreme Court on the administration’s Clean Power Plan:

“Decisions relating to the Clean Power Plan are already being made that will have direct and far-reaching impacts on manufacturers, and we cannot wait while the courts decide on the ultimate fate of the regulation. Manufacturers are consumers of one-third of the nation’s energy, and this regulation not only increases costs for manufacturers, impacting our productivity and competitiveness, but also creates uncertainties for future growth, job creation and economic development. Manufacturers face immediate and irreparable impacts, and we will not stand on the sidelines while the legality of this regulation is debated. Our arguments are strong, and we will continue to fight this regulation in the courts and in the halls of Congress.”
