WASHINGTON — The American Energy Alliance (AEA) commends President Trump on his nomination of Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court. AEA President Thomas J. Pyle, made the following statement:
“President Trump has made another outstanding decision in nominating Judge Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. As a judge on the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, a primary venue for litigation against the administrative state, Kavanaugh established a solid track record of evaluating important regulatory issues relating to energy and environmental policy, and applying the Constitution in a fair, impartial and consistent manner.
“Judge Kavanaugh’s willingness to challenge executive branch regulatory overreach will fortify the Court and strengthen citizens’ constitutional protections from the administrative state. His voiced criticism of the doctrine of Chevron Deference, which hands legislative power to unelected federal bureaucrats, will help begin the process of clawing back power from unaccountable government agencies.
“President Trump made an exceptional pick in nominating Judge Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court and America will be stronger for it.”
