Supreme Court Blocks Clean Power Plan Rule

from NDA

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday voted to block federal regulations to curb carbon dioxide emissions mainly from coal-fired power plants, a centerpiece of President Barack Obama’s efforts to address his concerns regarding climate change.

The court voted 5-4 along ideological lines to grant a request by 27 states and certain companies and business groups to block the administration's Clean Power Plan, which also mandates a transition to renewable energy from coal-fired electricity. The highly unusual move by the justices means the regulations will not be in effect while a court battle continues over their legality.
