Another Victory for Republican AGs

On Thursday, Republican attorneys general challenging the Biden Administration received another victory in court:

A Louisiana judge issued a permanent injunction against the Biden administration’s moratorium on new oil and gas leasing on federal lands Thursday night, a day after another court tossed an earlier injunction against it. 

In the Thursday ruling, Judge Terry Doughty of the Western District of Louisiana permanently blocked the January 2021 order in 13 states that sued over the order in March of that year. The states in question are Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah and West Virginia. It does not apply to any states uninvolved in the lawsuit. 

Doughty ruled the order was in violation of the Mineral Leasing Act (MLA) and Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act (OCSLA), saying it took steps reserved for Congress. 

Republican attorneys general have have made it a top priority to push back against the Biden Administration's policies.

Recently, coalitions of Republican attorneys general announced their opposition to concerning practices regarding environmental, social and governance (ESG) at the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and at private companies.
