"Durbin was beating Oberweis in Chicago and suburban Cook County." Wow that's a news flash, the corrupt democrats have Chicago and Cook county in their pocket with the good old boy network handing out government jobs and spending tax dollars to buy votes. I'd like to think Oberweis has a chance to get rid of Durbin but with Chicago and Cook county voter fraud and vote buying I just don't…

I have heard from MANY voters here, that number 1, never saw the person passing the petition around (the one in California) and number 2, that they were told the petition was for term limits and other lies, NOT for a Libertarian candidate. The democrats in this state want a libertarian on the ballot, to help democrats. So a vote for any other candidate is a vote for Quinn, and a wasted vote. A vote…

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

5 months, 1 week ago by 0

 

 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.
