The State of Texas is threatening to sue the Biden Administration over the implementation of what they describe as unlawful “top-down” economic regulations that could have a major negative impact on farmers and energy producers in the state.

Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas said in a statement that the Biden Administration has “illegally usurped authority,” as the federal government has imposed new regulations that could limit the state’s ability to manage its own resources.

According to Paxton, the Biden Administration’s actions violate the Constitution, the Administrative Procedure Act, and the Clean Air Act. He added that these regulations threaten the livelihoods of Texas farmers and energy producers.

“The Biden administration’s top-down economic regulations threaten Texas farmers and energy producers, and I will not stand for it,” said Paxton. “My office will take legal action to restore the rule of law, protect Texas’s interests, and defend the Constitution and the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling in Texas v. United States.”

Paxton argued that the Biden Administration has acted without the approval of Congress, leaving the courts as the only option for relief for Texas energy producers and farmers.

“The Biden administration cannot enact their unlawful policies without the approval of Congress,” said Paxton. “My office will continue to fight for the sovereignty of our state and hold the Biden administration accountable.”

Texas is now preparing to take the Biden Administration to court over the issue. If successful, the lawsuit could have a major impact on the way the federal government is able to regulate the economy, as well as the livelihoods of Texas farmers and energy producers.
