U.S. Supreme Court Hears Indiana Lawsuit

The U.S. Supreme Court announced today it will hear a case brought by Indiana, along with 11 other states, challenging the Environmental Protection Agency’s authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions.

The high court has decided to hear the case during the current session, although it has not set a scheduled date for when arguments will be heard.

The lawsuit, originally filed by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, argues the EPA’s regulations on greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon dioxide, from power plants and refineries violate the Clean Air Act.
