Cuccinelli Challenging the EPA on Greenhouse Gases

Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli says he's going to court over new fuel efficiency rules issued by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Cuccinelli's office said Thursday the rules are a tacit denial of his lawsuit challenging the EPA's conclusion that greenhouse gases are dangerous to people and should be regulated under the Clean Air Act.

Spokesman Brian Gottstein says Cuccinelli plans to file a notice of appeal about the fuel efficiency rules for passenger vehicles built from 2012 through 2016.
