Appeals court delays EPA coal-plant rule

HOUSTON (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Friday issued a last-minute order delaying the January 1 implementation of an Environmental Protection Agency rule affecting coal-fired power plants, according to a court filing.

The Cross-State Air Pollution Rule was opposed by more than a dozen states and power companies.
