Twelve Republican states are suing the Biden administration, claiming a recent climate-focused executive order will undermine state sovereignty and tear apart the “fabric of liberty.”
The suit argues that President Joe Biden’s order “will destroy jobs, stifle energy production, strangle America’s energy independence, suppress agriculture, deter innovation, and impoverish working families. It undermines the sovereignty of the States and tears at the fabric of liberty.
“In practice, President Biden’s order directs federal agencies to use this enormous figure to justify an equally enormous expansion of federal regulatory power that will intrude into every aspect of Americans’ lives.”
According to Fox News, Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt is leading the suit, writing in a Monday tweet, “We’re fighting back against this unlawful federal overreach.”
????TODAY I led a 12 state coalition in filing suit against President Biden’s administration over the massive expansion of federal regulations through executive order.
We’re fighting back against this unlawful federal overreach.
