Supreme Court rules against EPA power plant emissions regulation


POV: Power Breakfast

A nearly daily round-up of news for your consideration:

  • Dominating energy headlines Monday was the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling against the Environmental Protection Agency’s regulations on mercury emissions saying the agency did not properly take into account the costs of the regulation. States including Texas had fought the regulation, the Austin American-Statesman reports:

    “While today’s decision is good news for Texas, the EPA continues to push an agenda with little regard for the price tag these regulations would impose on employers and ultimately, Texans,” Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement. “Texas will stand ready to continue our fight against an overbearing federal government that stands in the way of economic prosperity.”

  • The Associated Press reports the ruling may bring increased scrutiny to the White House’s other climate change plans, though the administration said the ruling shouldn’t impact implementation of the Clean Power Plan later this summer.
