Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), at a post-election news conference Nov. 9 on Capitol Hill, talked about the future of President Obama’s Clean Power Plan, which is under review by a 10-judge panel of the D.C. Circuit.
His comments were prompted by a reporter who asked McConnell what he would advise President-elect Trump to do with the regulation, which sets state-specific carbon dioxide emissions limits on the power sector. The reporter wondered aloud if the new president would just drop the case once he takes office.
“That would sure be my hope,” McConnell replied. “Day one would be a good idea.”
McConnell’s comments come around the last few minutes of this 26 minute press conference.
A decision on the rule could come from the D.C. Circuit early next year. In February, the U.S. Supreme Court issued a decision to stay the rule until it could be fully litigated. You can read all about it in Supreme Court Halts Clean Power Plan in Blow to Obama.
For a deeper dive, Andrew Childers and Patrick Ambrosio took a look at what may happen to the Clean Power Plan under Trump in Fate of Obama’s Climate Regulations Now in Trump’s Hands.
