HOUSTON, TX – Following the Supreme Court’s approval for construction to begin on the long-awaited Mountain Valley Pipeline, Consumer Energy Alliance (CEA) President David Holt issued the following statement:
“We are pleased the U.S. Supreme Court has authorized the construction of the Mountain Valley Pipeline to proceed, enabling its completion to deliver the affordable, reliable energy families and businesses deserve to meet their needs in the most environmentally responsible way possible. Just like it should not require an Act of Congress to build critical energy infrastructure in our country, it should not require the Supreme Court to provide relief from an activist circuit court willing to follow the Lorax instead of following the law.”
“After this decision, it is our hope that the 4th US Circuit Court of Appeals re-evaluates the flawed logic and legal contortions that have encouraged anti-energy groups to embark on in their crusade to deny building the critical energy infrastructure necessary to deliver the energy our families and businesses need.”
