U.S. top court upholds air pollution regulation

WASHINGTON, April 29 (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a major federal regulation limiting air pollution that crosses state lines.

The ruling, on a 6-2 vote with Justice Samuel Alito recused, marks a victory for the environmental agenda of President Barack Obama. The rule in question mostly regulates emissions from coal-fired power plants. (Reporting by Lawrence Hurley; Editing by Howard Goller)
