Dem senator hopes greens will sue Obama

Sen. Barbara Boxer, chairwoman of the Senate Environmental and Public Works Committee, is none too pleased with President Obama's decision to push a law to curb energy emissions until 2013 - and she is betting that environmental groups will feel the same. Boxer told reporters this week that she disagrees "strongly" with Obama's decision, and would support environmental groups in any litigation to issue a final emissions ruling. "I hope they'll be sued in court," Boxer said, "and I hope the court can stand by the Clean Air Act." [Politico]
