Press release issued today from Senator John Cornyn’s office:

WASHINGTON—U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, today issued the following statement after internal EPA emails requested under the Freedom of Information Act reveal the EPA has been collaborating with environmental organizations, helping these organizations gather signatures for petitions that support the EPA’s position, and giving these groups advance notice of efforts to regulate domestic energy producers:

“If it wasn’t clear enough before that this Administration has it out for domestic energy producers in Texas and the across the country, these emails make it crystal clear. For the EPA, overregulating energy producers is one big political game where every move blocks job creation.”
