The Wall Street Journal: Supreme Court agrees to take up challenge to EPA capacity to limit power-plant emissions

The court said it would hear appeals from Republican-led states and coal

companies that are challenging a lower-court ruling that said the EPA had broad latitude to craft such regulations. That decision, issued in January, tossed out industry-friendly Trump administration rules on the grounds that they interpreted the Clean Air Act too narrowly.
