Supreme Court to Hear Challenge to EPA Climate Regulations

But there’s no doubt that this case will be a test for the Obama Administration and its green allies—and an opportunity for industry groups and conservatives who have long attacked the EPA regulations for the impact they might have on the U.S. economy. “The Supreme Court’s decision to grant cert will, we hope, ultimately put the brakes on EPA’s unprecedented regulatory barrage of global warming rules,” Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) general counsel Sam Kazman said in a statement. (CEI is a co-petitioner in the challenge to the EPA rules.) If nothing else, the looming case will add more uncertainty to the politically charged regulatory process.
