Pence Says He Will Fight New EPA Emissions Rules in Court

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) _ Republican Gov. Mike Pence says that he plans to legally challenge President Barack Obama's newly announced power plant emissions requirements.  
 
Pence says “far too much is at stake for jobs and the economy in Indiana'' for the state to do anything less.
 
The mandatory cuts in greenhouse gas emissions were announced by the president Monday. They call for a 32 percent reduction in power plant carbon dioxide pollution by 2030.  
 
Backers of the new rules say Indiana power plants are among the biggest power plant polluters in the U.S. But opponents of the new Environmental Protection Agency regulations say the new rules will increase power bills. 
 
Pence has said he will refuse to submit a emissions reduction plan to the EPA, as called for under the new regulations.
