Obama administration targets coal with controversial emissions regulation

• http://www.foxnews.com,

The controversial regulation, which some lawmakers already are trying to block, is one of the most sweeping efforts to tackle global warming by this or any other administration. 

"We have a moral obligation to act," EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy said, in announcing the plan Monday morning. 

While the proposed regulation drew praise from environmental groups, the coal industry and coal-state lawmakers were immediately wary. Democratic West Virginia Rep. Nick Rahall announced he would introduce legislation, along with Rep. David McKinley, R-W.Va., to stop the EPA plan.
