Republican governors slam Obama energy policy at Houston event

Update: Republican governor says legal action against EPA’s ‘dangerous overreach’

HOUSTON — Texas Gov. Rick Perry and fellow Republic governors from energy-rich states have gathered in downtown Houston to take aim at federal energy policy and the Obama administration’s new regulations on power plant pollution.

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple and Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead were scheduled to join Perry for the Republic Governors Association event Monday at the Petroleum Club.

A news release said the governors would discuss the “latest job-killing EPA regulations, how this White House has continually failed to lead on energy policy, and how Republican governors are promoting an ‘all-of-the-above’ energy strategy in their states.”
