US Supreme Court rejects EPA mercury emissions limits

Supreme Court on Monday rejected federal environmental regulations requiring power plants to limit emissions of mercury and other pollutantsThe US Supreme Court on Monday rejected federal environmental regulations requiring power plants to limit emissions of mercury and other pollutants, in a defeat for the Obama administration. In a 5-4 decision split along conservative and liberal lines, America’s top court sided with 23 states and industry groups who had protested the cost of standards imposed in 2012 by the national Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
