Ohio-based coal company sues Obama administration over energy policy

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- President Obama's administration is being sued by one of the nation's largest coal companies.

Ohio-based Murray Energy is looking to block the EPA's new carbon emissions rules for power plants. The new rules announced this month force a 30 percent cut in carbon dioxide emissions from 2005 levels by 2030.

It's an effort to reduce global warming.

An EPA spokeswoman won't comment on the lawsuit, but says the agency writes solid rules and they stand up in court.
