West Virginia lawyer normal broadcasts pending litigation in opposition to Biden’s local weather plan WDVM25 & DCW50
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (WDVM) – After President Joe Biden’s climate summit Thursday, West Virginia Attorney General Patrick Morrisey pledged to fight the president’s new emissions targets.
Morrisey held a press conference Friday and said Biden’s plan had set unrealistic schedules and economic predictions.
“Let’s pause for a moment: Does any American really believe that a third of hard-working men and women in West Virginia and every other state will replace their cars with electric vehicles by 2030?” Asked Morrisey.
Morrisey also reminded residents of West Virginia – many of whom rely on the coal and energy industries to support themselves – that the plan doesn’t have the support from Congressional it likely needs.
“Without Congress – which didn’t vote on that promise – Biden will then be forced into a very difficult position. Either he has to give up or he has to try to go it alone, ”said Morrisey.
The attorney general also promised to fight the plan in court and announced pending litigation being waged by the state of West Virginia.
