A divided Supreme Court agreed Tuesday to halt enforcement of President Barack Obama's sweeping plan to address climate change until after legal challenges are resolved.
The surprising move is a blow to the administration and a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations "an unprecedented power grab."
By temporarily freezing the rule the high court's order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.

There's a whole lot of 'Stop 0bama' going on right now. I don't get it. Why wait seven years and then say, "Enough."
Something's afoot I tell ya!!
So the cost to the states would be Billions of dollars. I'm curious if there is a study somewhere that estimates how much these green changes would cost each state.
The cost won't be to the states but rather to the privately owned corporations that are polluting our planet. So it's profit over the health of the people just like usual.

Maybe that Scotus ruling was the straw that broke the camels back, and how we ended up with a Scotus vacancy.
I wouldn't put it past the current admin.
