DENVER – Western Energy Alliance today calls on the U.S. Department of the Interior to address growing mismanagement of national park funding and reverse policies threatening future conservation projects. Ongoing fires at Yosemite National Park and recent flooding at Yellowstone National Park underscore the growing threats to national parks from the Biden Administration’s poor oversight of conservation funding from the Great American Outdoors Act (GAOA).
Following Supreme Court’s Rebuke of EPA Overreach, SEC Should Rescind Climate Disclosure Rule
DENVER -- Today, Western Energy Alliance and the U.S. Oil and Gas Association (USOGA) call on the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to rescind its proposed climate change disclosure rule in light of yesterday’s Supreme Court ruling West Virginia v. Environmental Protection Agency. The proposed rule runs afoul of the major questions doctrine by assuming climate change regulatory and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reporting authority for SEC. If even EPA doesn’t have such authority in the absence of a congressional mandate, then certainly a financial regulator cannot act like an environmental regulatory agency by requiring GHG emissions reporting and reductions.
