    Arizona prohibits CO2 regulations by state and regional programs:

    Bill: HB 2442 (PDF)

    Sponsored by Rep. Judy Burges, Sen. Frank Antenori, et al and signed into law by Gov. Jan Brewer, HB2442 prohibits an Arizona state agency from adopting or enforcing a state or regional program to regulate greenhouse gas emissions without express legislative authorization.

    Burges states: “HB 2442, signed into law, limits the implementation of regional Environmental Protection Agency programs without going through the legislative process. HB 2442 was critical because implementation of a cap-and-trade program on carbon emissions could cost Arizona 124,000 jobs, $14.7 billion in lost revenues, and fuel and utilities increases of 27 percent and 50 percent, respectively. Arizonans cannot afford these costs.”

    Arizonans seek to be free of federal CO2 mandates:

    Bill: SCR 1050

    The “Freedom to Breathe Act”: Arizona has exclusive authority to regulate anthropogenic emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. The legislature of this state [Arizona] declares that the authority for this act is the following: The Tenth Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees and reserves to the states and their people all powers not granted to the federal government elsewhere in the Constitution as they were understood at the time that the amendment was ratified on December 15, 1791.

    Commonwealth of Virginia challenges EPA/Fed Gov on CO2 and global warming

    State of VA Court filing

    EPA failed to properly exercise its judgment as required by the Clean Air Act (“CAA”) and acted in an arbitrary and capricious fashion by relying almost exclusively on reports of the IPCC in attributing climate change to anthropogenic greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions….Therefore, EPA is about to begin regulating GHG emissions based on a scientific process that was conducted without those procedural safeguards contained in American law.

    Arizona attempts to set affordable and diverse energy policy:

    Bill: 2701

    Gives the Arizona legislature exclusive authority over setting renewable energy policy; adds nuclear and hydro-electric to the mix of “clean energy” sources; relieves energy utility companies of expensive burdensome renewable energy mandates that spike energy bills for all Arizonans.
