Tri-State lauds Supreme Court decision to stay Clean Power Plan

On Feb. 9, 2016, the U.S. Supreme Court granted the applications of numerous parties, including Tri-State, to stay EPA's Clean Power Plan for the period of time the rule is being challenged in court.

The court's unprecedented decision to stay the Clean Power Plan pending judicial review is a monumental step forward in the effort to stop the costly and legally-flawed regulation. Allowing the rule to move forward as these challenges are litigated would have caused immediate and irreparable harm to Tri-State, its member electric cooperatives and rural communities across the West.
