Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed the lawsuit, and he was joined by state attorneys general from Arkansas, Arizona, Indiana, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Utah.

“Manufacturing, agriculture, and energy production are essential to Missouri’s economy and employ thousands of hard-working Missourians across the state. Under President Biden’s executive order, which he didn’t have the authority to enact, these hard-working Missourians who have lived and worked this land for generations could be left in the dust,” Schmitt, a Republican, said in a March 8 statement.

The recent lawsuit challenges the President’s Executive Order 13990, titled “Protecting Public Health and the Environment and Restoring Science to Tackle the Climate Crisis.” It accuses the new administration of not having enough authority to issue binding numbers on the “social costs of greenhouse gases” in federal regulations.

“From higher energy bills to lost jobs, this massive expansion of federal regulatory power has the potential to impact nearly every household in this state—that’s why today, I’m leading a coalition of states to put a stop to this executive order and protect Missouri families,” said Schmitt.

The lawsuit argues that the new order may trigger huge damage to the US economy (trillions of dollars!), adding that Biden’s executive order threatens the US Constitution’s separation of powers doctrine.

“In practice, this enormous figure will be used to justify an equally enormous expansion of federal regulatory power that will intrude into every aspect of Americans’ lives—from their cars, to their refrigerators and homes, to their grocery and electric bills,” the lawsuit reads (pdf).

The January 20 order was created to “promote and protect our public health and the environment” and “conserve our national treasures and monuments.”

“Where the Federal Government has failed to meet that commitment in the past, it must advance environmental justice,” the order stated. “In carrying out this charge, the federal government must be guided by the best science and be protected by processes that ensure the integrity of Federal decision-making. ”

Biden’s order directs federal agencies and departments to address Trump’s climate-related executive orders.

States filed the lawsuit on March 8 in federal court in the Eastern District of Missouri.
