The U.S. Supreme Court struck down a federal air emissions rule that was challenged by the state of Michigan. On Monday, the court decided that the Environmental Protection Agency should have considered the costs of complying with the rule.

The case is Michigan v. EPA. Here are the order and opinions from the Supreme Court:
