The Supreme Court denied a petition last week from 10 Republican-led states to block a key Biden climate policy, The Daily Caller reports.
The policy in question is informally titled the “social cost” of carbon policy and places an estimated dollar value on carbon emissions which then is used in the federal permitting process.
The Republicans argued that the policy is executive overreach and is a bypass of congressional approval on an issue they say assigns a dollar value to American taxpayers of a global problem.
The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling that sided with the 10 states for lack of standing.
The effort was led by Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry.
