CAC President Doug Kendall appeared on FOX News Channel’s Special Report with Bret Baier, discussing the greenhouse gas cases just argued before the U.S. Supreme Court.

SHANNON GOESSLING, SOUTHEASTERN LEGAL FOUNDATION: No matter how any American feels about global warming or manmade global warming, every American should be very concerned when an executive agency exceeds their authority. And that’s really what this case is about. It’s about an administrative agency deciding there is a problem and addressing it without any bounds.        


DOUG KENDALL, CONSTITUTIONAL ACCOUNTABILITY CENTER: The EPA chose to try to implement the broad protective goals of the statute by bending a little bit on the implementation side. And I think that’s a choice that agencies have to be able to make.
