President Obama Vetoes Congressional Disapprovals

As anticipated, President Obama has vetoed the Congressional resolutions to disapprove of the Clean Power Plan and the New Source Performance Standards under the Congressional Review Act.  In his Memorandum of Disapproval on S.J. Res. 23 (NSPS) and Memorandum of Disapproval on S.J. Res. 24 (CPP), President Obama states: “Climate change poses a profound threat to our future and future generations” and that the Clean Power Plan “is essential in addressing the largest source of greenhouse gas pollution in our country.”
