On April 19, states and industry stakeholders filed two separate suits with the U.S. Supreme Court questioning whether the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the authority to regulate greenhouse gas emissions. The first case, filed by 12 states and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality, appealed a 2012 U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia decision upholding regulations. The suit asked the court to clarify if the decision in Massachusetts v. EPA applied to all emissions sources or just motor vehicles which was the original subject of the case. The states involved in the case are AL, FL, GA, IN, LA, MI, NE, ND, OK, SC, SD, and TX. The same day, the Energy-Intensive Manufacturers Working Group on Greenhouse Gas Regulation and the Glass Packaging Institute filed a suit saying the EPA should have considered alternative programs to regulate carbon emissions from stationary sources; the agency currently uses prevention of significant deterioration and Title V permitting to regulate greenhouse gases.
