Why isn't this woman in prison? She abetted in the deaths of 4 American's in Benghazi, she's been involved in more scandals than Slick Willie such as her cattle futures boondoggle, the WH Travel office charade, Whitewater land scandal, sniper fire landing lie in Bosnia, e-mail scandal, billing records scandal from Rose law firm and confidential FBI files taken to Clinton WH.

Yeah poor little dirtbag got passed over by a east coast rabid wacko liberal. Doesn't say much for dirtbag but Schumer is even more of a radical socialist than Dickie is.

If the partisan posters will brush up on their comprehension skills, it is a democrat that is sponsoring this bill. Unions support it. If you believe parents should have a say, you agree with the democrats and the teachers' union. Your rants make no sense at all.

Ethanol Industry files to take LCFS fight to United States Supreme Court

1 year ago by

 

 Following the January decision by the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to deny rehearing en banc in the litigation regarding California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (LCFS), the Renewable Fuels Association (RFA) and Growth Energy are today petitioning the U.S. Supreme Court for certiorari to make a final determination relating to the constitutionally flawed LCFS.  

“California, through adoption of the LCFS, has violated the most basic, structural features of interstate federalism.  LCFS not only discriminates against out-of-state commerce, but it seeks to regulate conduct in other States in direct contravention of our constitutional structure and at the direct expense of Midwestern farmers and ethanol producers.”   

RFA and Growth Energy moved forward with a Supreme Court challenge after a divided panel of the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a District Court (O’Neill, J.) finding that the California LCFS discriminates against interstate commerce and constitutes extraterritorial regulation in violation of the Commerce Clause. By its own admission, California’s Low Carbon Fuel Standard (“LCFS”) seeks to regulate greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions occurring in other states by rewarding and punishing industrial and agricultural activity taking place outside California.  And it bases the size of these rewards and penalties on whether production took place in “California” or in the “Midwest”—systematically favoring California. The Constitution denies states such authority.
