Federal court strikes down Biden rule requiring states and cities to set climate targets for transportation

A federal court has ruled against a Biden administration rule that required states and cities to set climate targets for transportation. The rule, issued by the Federal Highway Administration, was struck down by Judge James Hendrix, a former President Trump appointee, who agreed with Republican-led states that the administration did not have the authority to enforce such requirements. The ruling has sparked mixed reactions, with the administration emphasizing its commitment to combatting climate change while congressional Republicans applauding the court's decision as a rejection of overreach.
