Governors of 18 U.S. states called on Congress to stop the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse-gas emissions. In a letter to the U.S. House and Senate leadership, the governors said a regulatory approach would "ultimately harm the competitiveness of the U.S. economy." The EPA replied to the charge, saying its rules on other issues "have led to innovations and the creation of new markets that can spur economic growth."
