WASHINGTON (AP) — Industry groups and Republican-led states are leading an attack at the Supreme Court against the Obama administration's sole means of trying to limit power-plant and factory emissions of gases blamed for global warming.
The court is hearing arguments Monday about a small but important piece of the Environmental Protection Agency's plans to cut the emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping gases. At issue is a requirement that companies expanding industrial facilities or building new ones that would increase overall pollution must also evaluate ways to reduce the carbon they release.
As President Barack Obama is pledging to act on environmental and other matters when Congress doesn't, or won't, opponents of the regulation cast it as a power grab of historic proportions.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Last summer when dozens of nuclear missile officers were allegedly cheating on proficiency exams, test scores were among the lowest of the year, according to Air Force records obtained by The Associated Press.
That is the opposite of what might be expected if answers were being shared as widely as officials allege.
No explanation is obvious, and the Air Force is not saying why test results were not better if, as alleged, at least 40 officers were cheating.
The case is still under official investigation.
The AP reviewed all test scores for 2013 for the unit in question — the 341st Missile Wing at Malmstrom Air Force Base in Montana. It found relatively weak scores during August and September, the period of alleged cheating.
