States sue EPA over carbon rule for new power plants

By Timothy Cama, The Hill.

A coalition of conservative states is again suing to stop President Obama’s carbon dioxide rule for newly built power plants.

The 23-state group filed a lawsuit Friday in the Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

They're challenging the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) decision in May to reject their formal requests to reconsider the carbon rule that was made final last year.
