Kansas Officials Threaten Suit Over Clean Power Plan

The state of Kansas is likely to take legal action against new carbon emission requirements announced by President Obama this week. The Clean Power Plan calls for states to lower power plant emissions by almost one-third by the year 2030. Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt calls it an executive overreach.

Schmidt’s office says legal action against the plan’s likely. But Kansas environmental groups cheered the new rule as an important step. Federal officials say Kansas power plants emitted 33 million metric tons of carbon pollution in 2013.
