Just in



Washington--The U.S. Supreme Court said on Tuesday that it will consider a challenge to the Environmental Protection Agency's rule that limits emissions by power plants, refineries, chemical facilities and other industrial sites. 

The high court said it would hear challenges filed by multiple industry associations and state governments that have complained that the EPA overstepped its authority under the Clean Air Act in moving to regulate emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases from "stationary sources," meaning industrial facilities and ultimately almost any energy-generating site in the country.

Petitions accepted by the court included one filed by the Chamber of Commerce and AFBF. Farm Bureau opposes the regulation of GHGs.
