9th U.S. Circuit Court http://ijpr.org en California Greenhouse Emissions Reduction Efforts Upheld http://ijpr.org/post/california-greenhouse-emissions-reduction-efforts-upheld <p>California's first-in-the-nation mandate requiring fuel producers to reduce greenhouse gas emissions has been upheld by a federal court.</p><p>A three-judge panel of the 9th U. S. Circuit Court of Appeals yesterday rejected arguments from fuel makers that California's low carbon fuel standard discriminates against out-of-state producers.</p><p>The ruling reverses a U.S. District Court ruling in favor of the fuel makers, and removes an injunction halting implementation of the law.</p> Thu, 19 Sep 2013 13:45:29 +0000 Barbara Dellenback 299 at http://ijpr.org
