OVERNIGHT ENERGY: GOP governors want climate rule nixed

CLIMATE RULE: Nine Republican governors want President Obama and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to pull the power plant greenhouse gas rule unveiled this month.

In a Monday letter, the governors called the rule an “unprecedented move” that “would largely dictate to the states the type of electricity generation they could build and operate.”

Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal (R) gave his two cents Monday as well. Jindal said while litigation should be a last resort, if Congress doesn't act it will be pursued.

"There’s a very good chance of litigation not only initiated by the states, but the industry is another,” Jindal said at a Petroleum Club press briefing in Texas Monday.
