Environment - "Coal country sues EPA over climate rule"

That is the heading to a story today from The Hill, reported by Benjamin Goad, that begins:

A dozen states representing America’s coal country are suing the Environmental Protection Agency to block forthcoming regulations imposing new limits on greenhouse gas emissions from power plants.

The lawsuit, filed late last week in the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, accuses the agency of overstepping its authority under the Clean Air Act.

West Virginia, Alabama, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, South Dakota, Wyoming and Indiana are named as plaintiffs in the case.

Stacy Page Online's story includes a copy of the 17-page complaint, filed in the DC Circuit.

Maureen Hayden of the CNHI Statehouse Bureau had a long related story on July 30th in the Kokomo Tribune, titled " For Indiana coal mining town, EPA climate change plan threatens stability: EPA plan to combat climate change sparks worries about loss of jobs."
