  Original Published: 10/17/2013 Come next year, the Supreme Court will take another look at government regulation of air pollution. The justices announced they had accepted six separate appeals for review. They will be consolidated into an hour of oral arguments scheduled for early next year, with a ruling expected by June. At issue is whether the federal Environmental Protection Agency can tighten emission standards for stationary greenhouse gas sources, such as power plants. The high court in 2007 affirmed the conclusions that greenhouse gases are an air pollutant. But that case dealt with emissions from motor vehicles. A range of business groups say the agency then improperly extended its regulatory authority.
