Lynn L. Bergeson Carla N. Hutton

The House Committee on Oversight and Accountability will hold a full committee hearing on July 10, 2024, on “Oversight of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.” According to the Committee’s July 3, 2024, press release, “[t]he hearing will conduct oversight and gather information from U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Michael Regan on the Biden Administration’s push of excessive environmental regulations and abuse of environmental protection authorities.” The press release quotes Committee Chair James Comer (R-KY) as stating: “We know the Biden Administration is overreaching its environmental protection authorities extensively, flouting the limits the Supreme Court set upon them two years ago in West Virginia v. EPA and adopting statutory interpretations that surely will not pass muster under the Court’s recent decision in Loper Bright Enterprises v. Raimondo. The Committee looks forward to holding the agency accountable next week for its efforts to cement Green New Deal and other misguided priorities that have hurt both American businesses and consumers across the country.”
