Virginia joined a growing list of opponents to the Environmental Protection Agency's plan to regulate greenhouse gases.
Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II petitioned a federal court Tuesday to reconsider EPA's decision that greenhouse gases, which are linked to global warming, are a public health threat. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and Texas filed similar suits.
Cuccinelli will argue, among other things, that EPA failed to consider how regulations will affect the state's economy, particularly in the coal-mining towns of southwest Virginia, spokesman Daniel Dodds said.
"We're asking them to reconvene because it did not take in to account the economic impacts," he said.
Cuccinelli also will ask the court to provide the public with a chance to comment on "newly available information," according to a press release from his office. More information will be made available at a Wednesday press conference, Dodds said.
