Supreme Court to hear appeals of EPA greenhouse gas rules
The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to hear appeals of the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants and other stationary sources. The court granted six separate petitions that challenged the agency’s rules on a number of grounds, but the justices said they would consider only a single issue: "Whether EPA permissibly determined that its regulation of greenhouse gas emissions from new motor vehicles triggered permitting requirements under the Clean Air Act for stationary sources that emit greenhouse gases."
The court said it would consolidate the cases and allot a total of one hour for oral argument. One of the cases was brought by the Utility Air Regulatory Group.
