Colorado attorney general to respond to governor’s complaint on Clean Power Plan

Hickenlooper asked the Supreme Court on Nov. 4 to issue a rule saying Coffman cannot sue the U.S. government without his permission. Coffman has said she has the right to file lawsuits on behalf of the state

DENVER | Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman is responding to Gov. John Hickenlooper’s complaint to the state Supreme Court about lawsuits she filed against the federal government over his objections.

Coffman is expected to file a motion Friday.

Hickenlooper asked the Supreme Court on Nov. 4 to issue a rule saying Coffman cannot sue the U.S. government without his permission. Coffman has said she has the right to file lawsuits on behalf of the state.

The governor and attorney general are elected separately. Hickenlooper is a Democrat and Coffman a Republican.

Hickenlooper went to the Supreme Court after Coffman joined a lawsuit challenging federal clean air rules. Hickenlooper supports the rules and Coffman says they’re illegal.

Hickenlooper says Coffman has filed other suits he doesn’t agree with.

    Hickenlooper is too much in pocket to ex-mayor Bloomberg and his millions and billions. We need more folks in Colorado leadership who will ignore him and speak for all the rest of us, who are not union, civil service, and rushing to spend funds for “pie in the sky” renewable energy which is a pipe dream. Have to smoke POT to see that being economical and efficient, when comparing costs from few years ago. His policies are taxing retired folks out of their homes, with increasing utility costs, while we are on fixed incomes.
