Ohio coal company sues over carbon emissions rules aimed at reducing global warming

WASHINGTON


One of the nation's largest coal companies has sued President Barack Obama's administration seeking to block the Environmental Protection Agency's new carbon emissions rules for power plants.

The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit by Murray Energy, based in St. Clairsville, Ohio.

Murray Energy says it's the nation's largest privately owned coal company. It employs 7,200 people in West Virginia, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Utah. It calls the EPA regulations illegal and argues they'll destroy jobs.

EPA rules announced this month seek to reduce global warming by forcing a 30 percent cut in carbon dioxide emissions from 2005 levels by 2030.

An EPA spokeswoman won't comment on the lawsuit. But she says the EPA "writes solid rules and they stand up in court."
