WASHINGTON, D.C. — The U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments early next year on whether the Environmental Protection Agency overstepped its authority in developing carbon emissions limits for sites like¬†factories and power plants.

The U.S.¬†Supreme Court will consider whether the EPA’s authority to regulate vehicle emissions, which came out of a 2007 Supreme Court ruling, can be applied to stationary sources.

Last year, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit upheld the EPA’s regulations aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

The High Court agreed to hear the case on Tuesday.

    I've been following this case and they're only looking at it from a very limited point of view. I don't expect much to come of it that's positive for the energy industries or the people of our State who depend on them for employment, or for state tax revenue collections that fund needed programs here. A big mistake in my view.
