Acting EPA Administrator: Our Clean Energy Rule Is Not a Rollback of the Obama Regulations But an Overhaul
WHEELER: "Exactly. It’s not a rollback but an overhaul, the Obama regulations never took effect because the Supreme Court did take the unprecedented action of issuing the stay. What we are doing is we took a close look at the Clean Air Act to make sure we are within the four corners of the Act, we are using the laws that Congress gave us and we have moved forward with this new approach which we believe is legally sound and can be implemented across the country and will provide protections for all Americans, as well as lower electricity rates. And this is exactly what President Trump asked us to do last year."
