The issue will be the regulation of greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act and woll probabaly end up in the supreme court. Strange that there were 28 states that sued against Obama's Clean Power Plan in 2016 and now 29 states are suing against Trumps plan, so some states don't like either this plan.


Strangely this plan is called the Affordable Clean Energy Rule


Quote:
WASHINGTON ó A coalition of 29 states and cities on Tuesday sued to block the Trump administration from easing restrictions on coal-burning power plants, setting up a case that could determine how much leverage the federal government has to fight climate change in the future.
The lawsuit is the latest salvo in a long-running battle over the future of coal and how to regulate the nationís heavily polluting power plants, which are major producers of greenhouse gases that warm the planet. It also is the most significant test to date of the Trump administrationís efforts to eliminate or weaken former President Obamaís regulations to reduce the United Statesí contribution to global warming.
