(WLNS) – After ruling on Same-Sex Marriage and the Affordable Care Act last week, Michigan officials are also waiting on a Supreme Court ruling with air pollution from power plants.
The justices heard oral arguments several months ago about whether the Environmental Protection Agency made a mistake when it adopted its first ever regulations requiring power plants to cut emissions of mercury and other toxic air pollutants.
The regulations would cost $9.6 billion annually. Michigan and 20 other states filed a lawsuit against the EPA. Consumers Energy and DTE Energy officials say they will be ready with whatever the court decides.
