Court Upholds Pollution Rules

U.S. Supreme Court gives EPA victory in campaign to reduce power plant air pollution that drifts across state lines.
(NBC News)  The U.S. Supreme Court gave the Obama Administration a big victory Tuesday in its efforts to reduce air pollution.

In a 6-to-2 decision the court upheld an Environmental Protection Agency rule requiring states to reduce the air pollution they allow to drift into other states.

The decision ends a decades long effort by the EPA to find a legal way to make sure states are good neighbors, and environmental activists say this will mean cleaner air for everyone.
