Bad news for President Obama tonight as the U.S. Supreme Court has blocked a new federal regulation that would cut emissions from power plants. The president announced last August that his Clean Power Plan would be the most important step the United States had ever taken against climate change.

The Supreme Court has put a hold on the plan, however, with opponents arguing that the Environmental Protection Agency has overstepped its authority and intruded on states’ rights.

West Virginia and Texas led 26 states that argued against the constitutionality of the Clean Power Plan.
