President issues Executive Order on Emmission Standards

The Supreme Court earlier this year that the EPA did not have valid grounds for not regulating greenhouse gas emissions (Massachusetts, et. al. v. Environmental Protection Agency, et. al.). Today the President issued an Executive Order, entitled "Cooperation Among Agencies in Protecting the Environment with Respect to Greenhouse Gas Emissions From Motor Vehicles, Nonroad Vehicles, and Nonroad Engines." This orders federal agencies to develop regulations on greenhouse gas emission before the end of his term.

The President made a brief statement on the decision at the Rose Garden today.
