A White House spokesperson calls the Supreme Court decision on West Virginia v. EPA "another devastating decision from the Court that aims to take our country backwards."
Read the full statement from the White House official:
“This is another devastating decision from the Court that aims to take our country backwards. While the Court’s decision risks damaging our ability to keep our air clean and combat climate change, President Biden will not relent in using the authorities that he has under law to protect public health and tackle the climate change crisis. Our lawyers will study the ruling carefully and we will find ways to move forward under federal law. At the same time, Congress must also act to accelerate America’s path to a clean, healthy, secure energy future.”
