BREAKING NEWS ~ California regulators approve sweeping new emissions rules

In a much-anticipated vote webcast live a few minutes ago on JURIST, California regulators have unanimously approved sweeping new rules designed to reduce auto emissions that create greenhouse gases contributing to global warming.

The new regulations passed by the California Air Resource Board are expected to be adopted in many other states who follow California environmental standards in this area. JURIST's Paper Chase carried this background story on the vote earlier this afternoon.
