Obama administration targets coal with controversial emissions regulation


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.
