When California’s Air Resources Board came out with teh nation’s first cape and trade program for GHG early this year, it was promptly sued. On May 20, 2011, a State Superior Court judge put an injunction on the Board prohibiting it from going ahead with the rules. The Board appealed the case.
On June 24, 2011, the State Appellate Court lifted (or stayed) the injunction thereby allowing the Board to proceed with the program while the Court considers the appeal.
This means the Board will go ahead with the cap and trade program.
