Federal Court Halts Biden’s Social Cost of Carbon, Attorney General Jeff Landry Claims Another Victory for the American Economy and Way of Life

LAKE CHARLES, LA – In a major win for nearly every aspect of Louisiana’s economy and culture – a federal court has halted the Biden Administration’s attempt to impose the Left’s radical, self-defeating green agenda on the American economy and people.

Judge James D. Cain, Jr. just now ruled in favor of Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry’s request for a preliminary injunction against Biden Executive Order 13990, which would have forced the destructive social cost of carbon analysis on nearly every meaningful federal action.

In granting the injunction, Judge Cain has issued a nationwide stop to the executive order.

“Biden’s attempt to control the activities of the American people and the activities of every business from Main Street to Wall Street has been halted today,” said Attorney General Landry. “Biden’s executive order was an attempt by the government to take over and tax the people based on winners and losers chosen by the government.”

In April 2020, Attorney General Landry led a 10-state coalition filing suit against Biden’s social cost of carbon fiat.

“Agriculture, energy, and virtually every other manufacturing industry is at stake; and today, a federal judge in Louisiana recognized that the federal government does not have this reach,” added Attorney General Landry. “While our fight is far from over, I am pleased the Court granted preliminary relief against the President’s unacceptable and unauthorized executive overreach; and I remain committed to seeing this case through to the end – fighting every step of the way for the workers and job creators in Louisiana and throughout our Republic.”
