Federal Court Considers Calif. Clean Fuel Laws
Listen to the audio:
The fight to control greenhouse gases in California continues Tuesday before the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals. A panel of three judges will consider whether the state has gone too far in its rules for pollution in fuels, like gas and diesel. Last year a federal judge in Fresno ruled that California's rules were unconstitutional, because they affected commerce between states. The case could have an impact on other states as they try to control pollution.
