An appeals court hands the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality a setback in its ongoing dispute with the EPA.

The battle between the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency took another step yesterday.  And it was a step toward the Feds.

The Fifth Court of Appeals ruled yesterday not to issue a stay requested by the TCEQ over implementing new greenhouse gas emissions next month.  Our political reporting partner, the Texas Tribune, reports that the court's ruling is probably not the end of the line for the legal challenges.
