Supreme Court to Rule on EPA’s Climate Authority
TCMA  |  December 2021
  On October 29, 2021, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to hear an appeal of the D.C. Circuit’s decision vacating the Affordable Clean Energy (ACE) rule, the Trump Administration’s action to address CO2 emissions from existing fossil-fired power plants. This marks the latest development in a legal fight over what authority the Clean Air Act confers on the EPA to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector—a fight that has spanned over six years and three presidential administrations.

Depending on the outcome, the Court could open the door to significant new regulations or tie the Administration’s hands by restricting the scope of EPA’s authority under the Clean Air Act. *
