Missouri Attorney General Leads 12 State Coalition in Filing Suit Against the Biden Administration over Massive Expansion of Federal Regulations
JEFFERSON CITY, MO (STL.News) Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt today led a coalition of 12 states in filing suit against President Joe Biden’s administration over massive expansion of federal regulations through executive order, potentially impacting nearly every aspect of the economy and Missouri household.
“Manufacturing, agriculture, and energy production are essential to Missouri’s economy and employ thousands of hard-working Missourians across the state. Under President Biden’s executive order, which he didn’t have the authority to enact, these hard-working Missourians who have lived and worked this land for generations could be left in the dust,” said Attorney General Schmitt. “From higher energy bills to lost jobs, this massive expansion of federal regulatory power has the potential to impact nearly every household in this state – that’s why today I’m leading a coalition of states to put a stop to this executive order and protect Missouri families.”
“For decades, farmers and ranchers have led the way in producing more food, fuel and fiber while reducing their environmental impact, including capturing carbon in more ways than ever. Government should not get in the way of our continued progress by adding regulations that dramatically increase production costs.
