Federal appeals court rejects Texas, Wyoming challenge to EPA curbing greenhouse gases
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – A federal appeals court on Friday rejected a legal challenge by Texas and Wyoming to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s efforts to implement greenhouse gas regulations.
A three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, split 2-1, said that the states did not have standing to sue, while rejecting related claims made by industry groups.
