Wise County Power Plant - Va. high court rejects challenge to Dominion plant
From the KTN
RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Environmentalists seeking to block construction of a coal-fired power plant in southwestern Virginia lost their case in the state Supreme Court on Friday.
The justices unanimously affirmed a state law authorizing Dominion Virginia Power's proposed 585-megawatt power station in Wise County. Opponents claimed the law violates the constitution's Commerce Clause because it favors the use of Virginia coal at the expense of out-of-state coal.
