Supreme Court OKs Calif. Low Carbon Fuel Standard

By Alan Ramo

The Supreme Court today refused to consider a petition requesting review of the Ninth Circuit’s approval of California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard.  The court provided no reasons.  See our blog on the En Banc decision upholding the standard.  It is a real win for one of the state’s most important climate change policies and for a more practical approach to the dormant commerce clause.  The decision should encourage the states to fashion innovative climate change policies in the absence of comprehensive federal policy, an explicit goal of the Ninth Circuit in its decision.
