Power Breakfast for April 16, 2014


The Environmental Protection Agency’s rule requiring power plants to limit emissions was upheld in a federal appeals court on Tuesday, The Wall Street Journal reports. Several energy industry groups, companies and more than 20 states had challenged the regulations arguing the EPA should have considered the costs of implementation.

From the article:

“The court upheld the EPA’s determination that it regulations were appropriate and necessary. The court also rejected arguments the agency should have considered the costs of its regulations before moving forward. Congress has given “no signal” the EPA shouldn’t regulate the emissions if doing so is costly, the court said.”
