Supreme Court blocks Obama administrationís carbon emissions plan
February 10, 2016

On Tuesday (Feb. 9, 2016) the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to block the Obama administrationís federal regulations to curb carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. On a 5-4 vote, the court granted a request made by 27 states and various companies and business groups to block the administration's Clean Power Plan. The ruling means the regulations will not be in effect while litigation continues over their legality.

The decision deals a legal blow to President Obama's efforts to introduce stronger government regulations to throttle back the coal, oil and natural gas energy industries in the name of climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. The administrationís Clean Power Plan favors renewable energy power sources, wind and solar. The outcome of the court action is of great concern to states like Wyoming where the hydrocarbon energy industry is a huge part of the state economy, tax revenue generation, and jobs.

The appeals court will hear oral arguments on June 2, 2016 to decide whether the regulations are lawful.
