Alaska senator's effort to block EPA on carbon emissions fails

Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, wanted to limit for a year the Environmental Protection Agency's ability to regulate greenhouse gas emissions from power plants, factories and other stationary sources of pollution. Murkowski objected to the agency's using the Clean Air Act to limit emissions, as required by a 2007 Supreme Court ruling.
