Supreme Court to Hear Case on E.P.A.’s Power to Limit Carbon Emissions

The New York Times cites CEI attorney Devin Watkins on the Supreme Court hearing a case on the EPA’s power to limit carbon emissions.

“The Supreme Court will be reconsidering E.P.A.’s massive claims of authority to redesign entire industries rather than merely requiring improved technology,” said Devin Watkins, a lawyer with the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a free-market think tank that opposes most environmental regulation. “This is excellent news because the agency lacks such massive power under the law.”
